Lots of aggressive energy captured in this statue of the warrior queen. The Brits don’t like people invading their island!!

A great reminder of the wonderful way Boadicea stood up to the invaders. She looks brave and stands her ground. Love looking at this statue - it's girl power in a nutshell!

So, here we are. Rome fields a superior, organized, well-trained, well-equipped, professional army. The opposition: tribes of poorly organized but determined citizenry putting it all on the line. The queen rallied the opposition and made some significant wins before being totally annihilated. Her spirit of resistance and determination is remembered and respected and, (among Londoners) worthy of a monument.

It is preferable to think of her driving the chariot, with her two daughters, off into the sunset of the ever-after. Odds are, however, against any happy ending. Rome would be most displeased by her affrontery.

A great looking statue, both fierce and beautiful, celebrating a piece of our history. Well worth stopping for a look if you are in the area.

Great representation of Boadicea (Boudicca), a thorn in the side of the Romans when they 'conquered' England. It is nowadays somewhat spoiled by the HUGE stand in front of it selling hats - Magnificent History or cheap hats, come on London, get rid of these 'tat' stands.

Boadicea and Her Daughters in a chariot with a scythe blade attached to each wheel – what a great symbol of the English defiance of the invading Roman Empire.

Statue was completed in 1885 and placed at its current location in 1902. In all of the busyness of this part of London it is easy not to look up and thus miss seeing this statue

Beneath the statue are the words: “Boadicea (Boudicca) queen of the Iceni who died AD 61 after leading her people against the roman invader”

Well worth looking and seeing!

Quite a delight to view- was amazed at the size and the beauty of the statue. Located next to Westminster Bridge- a busy area, but worth stopping to admire. If you don't know the history of Boadicea= look it up and you'll be amazed

On the corner of the Embankment and Westminster Bridge, this fine statue can be missed due to busy traffic and numerous people crossing the road. It is impressive, try not to miss it if you are in the area.

This statue stands at the end of Westminster Bridge and is a very impressive piece with Boadicea at full gallop on her chariot. Whether it is a correct historical representation is open to question, but that doesn't stop it being a great piece of work.
