Lions at the Tower and an elephant in the rail station. London is still collecting animals in odd places. In Victorian times you might have seen a real elephant at a circus near Waterloo Station, now you'll see this sculpture by artist Kendra Haste.
Waterloo station has become a bit of a white elephant itself since the eurostar moved over to the beautifully refurbished St Pancras International. Now, other than a few productions of the play "the railway children" Waterloo International's platforms lay empty and unused.
