Lions of London
Meet: Cutty Sark Gardens 10am
London is unique in the number and variety of its lion statues. If you ask Londoners how many such lions they think there are, they usually say, 'There are four in Trafalgar Square' and they pause . . . then 'Oh yes, there's also one by Westminster Bridge.' In fact there are many thousands more, from the oldest and snootiest to the cheekiest and saddest .
We set off on Safari to find these and other lions, from private homes to Rugby grounds from bridges to gateposts they overrun the capital, how many would we find.
Expect to visit the city, Barnes, Chelsea and possibly Twickenham, although this is a social ride and will be modified on the go to suit the majority.
We will lunch, Lions are not freely available, so we may have to settle for a Giraffe!
