Admire Boudica's chariot

Boudica was the ancient queen of the Iceni, famous for leading an uprising against the Romans which saw London sacked and burnt to the ground.

A huge bronze statue of her driving a chariot, designed by Thomas Thorneycroft, now stands on Westminster bridge amongst the throngs of tourists and burger vans which Westminster City Council inexplicably permits at the centre of a world heritage site.
