London Statues come to Life

For over two thousand years London has sat at its place on the River Thames as the crossing point and capital. For millennia this city has played a major part of British and world history and was the focal point for the largest empire in human history.  Throughout the streets of this city stand statues and monuments to the men and women that built and shaped the city, the country and the world.  Some of their names are burned in our collective memory and some have faded with time, yet all have fascinating lives and stories that are worth retelling and should never be forgotten.

The London Statues Tour will take you through some of the most iconic parts of London, following the statues and their stories as we pass them all. From Leicester Square through Trafalgar square, down Whitehall and all the way to the Houses of Parliament. Every day we walk past these effigies, some we know but many we don’t, yet each has a tale to amaze and astonish and we will reveal all.

Important Information

You will meet your tour guide and representative from Carers Support Merton in front of the Henry Irving statue, just down from the Steak & Co restaurant at the junction of Orange Street and Irving Street, just off of Charing Cross Road and 25m to the right (North) of the front entrance of the National Portrait Gallery.

This is 2 minutes walk from Leicester Square Underground Station (Exit 2, Charing Cross Road West side) or 4 minutes walk from Charing Cross underground/overground station.
