  • What made during Thutmose III of the 18th dynasty of Egypt, in what is known as Cleopatra's needle, and Cleopatra VII nothing, but made more than 1,000 years earlier than her? I can see the real ancient Egypt obelisk in London still, strange!

  • Cleopatra's Needle (needle of Cleopatra), is located between the Station and the bridge Embankment Waterloo Bridge on Via Victoria Embankment on the Bank of the River Thames. Two large bronze Sphinxes are on each side of the needle. There are four plaques mounted around the base of the Obelisk giving a brief history of "needle" and your trip to London. Was made in Egypt for Thotmes III Pharaoh in 1460 BC, is known as Cleopatra's needle, was brought to London from Alexandria, the Royal City of Cleopatra, arriving in London in the year 1878.

  • Amazing to see something that has been erected in london, the greatest city in the world and to be so old that everything that you can see around you just wouldn't have been there when this was origin...  more »

  • A gift from an Egyptian ruler and nearly 3500 years old this ancient obelisk a sentinel presence on the Thames. Indifferent to the passage of time and an ironic counterpoint to the Shell Mex House clock ( London's largest) marking the passage of time across the road. Certainly worth a peek.
  • Given to England after Nelson's victories, but not erected until 1877. At least 3,500 years old. Reputation as place for ghost sightings and as a place to take one's life. Weird vibe.
  • A lovely place, but I do feel for Sadie and Carter Kane.
  • Lovely place! I would prefer if when the shop is closed, lights could be used to make the shop look less like a toilet.
  • Great part of the landscape of the River Thames. I do many walks, or rather as many as I can down the River Thames Path. This is a very significant part of what makes the character and history of the River Thames so interesting. If you are walking along the Embankment you cannot miss it and for me always is a lovely sight.
