Piccadilly is a multiplayer map featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Piccadilly is a map based on the second mission of the campaign level, which has the same name. The map is based in London, and seems to take place after the events of the campaign level. There are buses in the center of the map, with accessible buildings around the edges. Long distance gunfights are typical, but the bus area as well as other sections offer great shotgun and submachine gun battle opportunities. The upper levels of certain buildings allow for sniping lanes as well as light machine gun nests, provided they are not flanked from behind. A booth near the buses is a common spot for players looking to eliminate enemies at their spawn, but is open at the rear, allowing for easy flanking.

- Allegiance - North-Eastern section of Map, Gets out of a white van.

- There is a building named "Riley's Arcade", which is a reference to Simon "Ghost" Riley.
- As of the 1.13 title update, the giant screens above the scaffolding area occasionally display a symbol resembling the skull faceplate that Simon "Ghost" Riley wears.
- Unlike other games set in London, The Underground maps in the underground sections of the map seem to be identical to their real-life counterparts.
- The Buildings are based off real buildings such as the Tanto building being referred as the Sanyo Building in real-life.
- The fountain is the same as found in the actual Piccadilly Circus.
- Sometimes when traversing through The Reading Place, players can hear a sound effect played there. This is the same sound effect played when the player walks through the security scanners in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare mission Black Sky.
- This map was the subject of April fools' jokes in both 2020 and 2021:
- In 2020, a playlist titled 'I have trust issues' was added, with the description 'Totally Shipment. Come on in. But just so you know, if you quit, there’s a penalty'. However, despite the description, the mode was in fact "Piccadilly 24/7".
- In 2021, with the new addition of the map Killhouse, a playlist called "Piccadilly 24/7" was added, with the description 'I swear it's not killhouse'. However, despite the description, the mode was in fact "Killhouse 24/7".
