This proud statue of a kingly lion weighs 13 tonnes, and stands at the east end of Westminster Bridge (i.e. the South Bank). The lion originally stood outside the Lion Brewery near Hungerford Bridge, but the brewery was destroyed in WWII, and the lion was moved to its current location in 1951 for the Festival of Britain. After a brief move to Waterloo Station, it was returned to its current spot beside County Hall. Its conterpart at the other end of Westminster Bridge is a statue of Queen Boudicca.
