Richard Whittington's Statue

Richard Whittington statue - four times Lord Mayor of London.

Location: Threadneedle Street, EC2M

Description: Stand with your back to the Bank of England in Threadneedle Street, between the bus stop and the Royal Bank of Scotland, look up... and hey presto. Richard Whittington in statue form. Four times Lord Mayor of London, Richard Whittington (not three, as in the pantomime) and I'm sure a jolly nice chap. Erected in 1844.
