The area
Address
Neighborhood: Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

Parliament Square statue
Aug 2020 • Friends
This is a respectful, tall sculpture of the former British Prime Minister found in front of the House of Commons. The Square itself is peppered with monuments and other statues immortalising key figures in British history, however, the Churchill monument is perhaps the best known here.

Granite hero on granite plinth

Surprising to think that this statue to Winston Churchill one of our greatest statesmen was erected in 1973 more than a quarter century after the end of World War II and eight years after his death in 1965. Cast in bronze by Ivor Roberts-Jones it depicts Churchill in defiant mood in a trench coat and resting on a cane capturing something, I think, of the dogged determination of the man who more than any other saw Britain and Europe through the dark days of war.

One of Europe's great heroes

The powerful commanding statue of Churchill is the first one you see on crossing to Parliament Square from the Houses of Parliament.

Quite right too, given his importance to British and indeed European history.

If you are visiting, start with Churchill and also explore the other statues here among the trees.

A small, yet fitting tribute for Britain's greatest leader. Towers above others. Definitely worth a visit.

Seen firstly during our hop on hop off bus tour and then I made a note of going to Parliament Square to see it up close, minimal time required to observe.

Watching Parliament

Some would consider Winston Churchill the greatest prime minister that the UK has ever had, especially as he was our leader during WWII.

It is appropriate that he is facing the Houses of Parliament so he can keep an eye on all the current MP's. Hopefully they will bear this in mind and behave honourably.

Sadly when I visited the statue was covered with bird poo. I hope someone cleans it up.

This incredible man took the might of the German army and won, he saved this country for the evils of Hitler. A born leader and a great orator. He's speeches live on to this day being quoted again and again. He gave this country his blood sweat and toil.
Unveiled in 1973 by his beloved wife Baroness Clementine Churchill.
Churchill himself located the spot. In his 1950's speech he refered to the spot as " Where my Statue Will Go. "

We came across the Winston Churchill statue located across the road at Parliment Square behind the Palace of Westminster. The statue is one of twelve on or around Parliament Square, most of well-known statesmen.
