Statement of care from Discover Leicester Square

Thank you for discovering Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus online.

at Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.

Our statement of care


From 00:01 on Tuesday 5th January 2020, England moved into the highest tier of Covid restrictions, national lockdown.

The official government advice is to stay at home. Due to the current situation, all cinemas, theatres, restaurants, bars, casinos and non-essential retail will temporarily close. However, those that offer takeaway or delivery service will still be operating. We continue to support local businesses and neighbours who are trading online and we look forward to welcoming visitors back to Discover Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus as soon as it is safe to do so.

There are still plenty of ways you can continue to support the businesses you love during these challenging times, from food delivery to online shopping and gift vouchers. We are working hard to be accurate but these are unprecedented times so please find out which of your favourite venues are still operating throughout lockdown by visiting their social pages or websites.
