London's best animal-based giant shopping centre-located statue

Location: Elephant and Castle, SE1

Description: The Elephant and Castle has witnessed dramatic changes in recent times, just three hundred years ago the area was sparsely populated. The area has always been an important traffic junction and was once known as 'the Piccadilly of South London'.

In the early 1960's the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre was built, the first of its kind in Europe.

It was about this time that London's 'best animal-based' giant shopping centre-located statue was borne. This fantastic statue has now been described as the 'emblem of the cockney world'. What a place!
