Cambridge Circus

Cambridge Circus is a former roundabout and now an intersection where Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road meet. It is roughly halfway between Tottenham Court Road tube station and Leicester Square. This building – which sits on the junction across the road from the Palace theatre – is thought by literary scholar David Monaghan to be the site for the headquarters of John Le Carre’s fictionalised British Intelligence service, known in his novels as the ‘Circus’.
