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.

Say what you want about Churchill. He was a deeply flawed man. But he was also the right combination of pig-headed stubbornness, moral clarity, and courage to lead his nation during the greatest crisis in British (and European) history. In the seemingly-hopeless months of 1940, his words rallied a people to hold the line against ultimate evil. All that is good and happy about modern Europe (the “broad, sunlit uplands” he described in his “Finest Hour” speech) is largely due to him.

Take a moment to admire his statue.

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.

Statue that captures Churchill well I think. Lots of mixed feelings about the man, he did like a drink. Johnny Walker red label was popular. And champagne. I like his quote “A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject”. Plenty of them around Westminster these days I’m afraid.

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.

This impressive Listed Grade II bronze statue by Ivor Roberts-Jones is the best-known one in Parliament Square. Standing on a granite pedestal in the north-east corner of the square, this larger than life statue is situated exactly where Sir Winston Churchill wanted it to be, overlooking the Houses of Parliament and the Elizabeth Tower (aka Big Ben).

Statues of seven other important statesmen can be seen in Parliament Square, mostly British Prime Ministers as well as US President Abraham Lincoln and South African President Nelson Mandela.

The statue was very clean when we viewed it, there does not seem to be a problem with pigeons. There is said to be an electric current running through it, which would explain why it is so clean.

PROS
* Imposing prominent impressive statue
* Most important location on Parliament Square, directly opposite the Houses of Parliament Building
* A very popular congregating and meeting spot for groups of tourists (see my "helpful" photos)

CONS
Not a single word of explanation or praise or honor or history is written there- just his name- his last name

"I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
... as the first and most prominent and significant statue when I explored Parliament Square. I looked at it from all the multiple angles and took a number of "helpful" photos.

WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
It's free

WOULD "I VISIT THIS PLACE" AGAIN?
Yes for sure- the next time that I visit

ADVICE
Be sure to come and see the statue and honor the famous significant British politician

"I visited this place" with the intention and plan to write a concise but thorough complete and "helpful" review and I attached and submitted" helpful" photos here on tripadvisor, so if these did "help" you, please indicate that by tikking the "thumbs up" 👍 symbol. Thanks.

Nice statue of Mr. Churchill. He stands facing Parliament and Westminster Bridge. There's typically a crowd in this region so it can be tricky to get a decent photograph.

This bronze sculpture of Winston Churchill stands in Parliament Square. It is one of 8 statues here and stands in a spot which he choose himself.
