  • 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

  • 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.
