La Fuente en Memoria de Shaftesbury de Piccadilly Circus, fue construida en el siglo XVIII en honor a Anthony Ashley-Cooper un famoso político y filántropo ingles. En el siglo XIX durante la segunda Guerra Mundial, la estatua que esta cima de la fuente fue reemplazada por vallas publicitarias, luego en los años 80 fue traslada a su posición actual. Ir a Piccadilly y no tomarse una foto en esta Fuente es como si no se visitó este lugar emblemático de Londres.
