  • At least it stands in a prime location on the corner of Parliament Square but I must say that I don’t feel it is quite the fitting tribute the great man deserves. Considering that we’d probably be spe...  more »
  • A few years ago some demonstrators gave the statue of Churchill a mohican haircut which rather gave the old boy some street credibility. The statue is well located right next to Westminster Abbey.  more »
  • This statue of Churchill is impressive and located in a prime location next to Westminster abbey. I wouldn't go out of my way just to see this statue.  more »

  • Good view point of the square, Big Bang and Westminster abbey. The statue is on a small square in the middle of the London’s traffic. Few mini-markets and bar around. No available toilets in the area.
  • Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill KG OM CH TD PCc DL FRS RA (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) was a British statesman, army officer, and writer, who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Over the course of his career as a Member of Parliament (MP), he represented five constituencies in both England and Scotland. During his time as Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to an allied victory in the Second World War. He was Conservative Party leader from 1940 to 1955. In 1953, Churchill won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his lifetime body of work, the prize cited "his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values". Churchill was born into an aristocratic family, the grandson of the 7th Duke of Marlborough and son of an English politician and an American socialite. Joining the British Army, he saw action in British India, the Anglo–Sudan War and the Second Boer War, gaining fame as a war correspondent and writing books about his campaigns. Moving into politics, before the First World War, he served as President of the Board of Trade, Home Secretary and First Lord of the Admiralty as part of Asquith's Liberal government. During the war, Churchill departed from government following the disastrous Gallipoli Campaign. He briefly resumed active army service on the Western Front as a battalion commander in the Royal Scots Fusiliers. He returned to government under Lloyd George as Minister of Munitions, Secretary of State for War, Secretary of State for Air, then Secretary of State for the Colonies. After two years out of Parliament, he served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in Baldwin's Conservative government of 1924–1929, controversially returning the pound sterling in 1925 to the gold standard at its pre-war parity, a move widely seen as creating deflationary pressure on the UK economy.
