At the Heart of Leicester Square
Leicester Square is the centre of blockbuster movies in London. It's a little park surrounded by cinemas and movie premiers are usually held here.

Even though I had been here countless of times when I was living in London years ago, I never really noticed what was in the centre of the park.

When I visited London again recently with my family, we stopped in the square for a rest after some sightseeing and shopping. It was only then that I noticed the statue of Shakespeare. Apparently the statue had been there since the 19th century. And to think I never knew this during the 8 years I was in London! I guess in my younger days I was too busy rushing around trying to catch the latest movies.

If you visit Leicester Square, Shakespeare is standing quite high up. Do go and have a closer look. You'll see this famous quote from "Twelfth Night".
