  • This monument you can admire in the center of the Strand, almost in front of the courthouse. The sculpture presents a huge dragon in the head, which is the symbol of London and below there are Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales

  • When you stand looking at the memorial you have to imagine what it would have looked like, if the original Temple Bar gate would have been allowed to stand as the point of entry to the City of London....  more »

  • In 1880 Horace Jones, a City of London architect, was commissioned to design a memorial to mark Temple Bar. One outstanding element of this is an elaborate pedestal in a Neo-Renaissance style. This serves as the base for a sculpture by Charles Bell Birch commonly called "The Griffin", which is in fact a dragon, This actually "marks" the entrance to the City, and bears the heraldic crest of the Corporation of the City of London. I love this piece of sculpture and the photo I have uploaded to Google Maps attempts to provide the imagery to show how fantastic it is. Love it and please go see it if you get the time.
  • Marks the boundaries of the City of London
  • Cool. Historical. A bit odd.
  • And we are in the City.
