In honor of Independence Day, Darren suggested we go on a walk around London in search of statues of former American Presidents.
Thus, off we went! (The map includes our route and markers for each statue.)
We kicked off the walk at Great Portland Street tube stop, right next to Regent’s Park and a statue of JFK. This Statue was funded by Sunday Telegraph readers, each allowed to donate no more than £1. The statue cost £50,000.
From JFK, we headed South into Mayfair to the US Embassy and Grosvenor Square, which is really the Powerball of presidential statue spotting in London. The Square is home to three of them: FDR, Eisenhower, and as of today, Reagan.
We then headed back to Bond Street to visit FDR & Churchill.
Walking South through Green Park and through Victoria, we found Lincoln, across from Westminster Abbey.
Wrapping it up, we visited Washington, a gift from the Commonwealth of Virginia, in front of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.
