We were in London and were crossing the Westminster Bridge. We found this statue at the end of the bridge. It is a very busy area with traffic, so it is difficult to get a nice view of the very detailed statue. The statue represents a queen of a Celtic tribe that led an uprising to the Romans.

A wonderful statue with an important part of Britain's history to tell. Boadicea was a queen who succeeded her husband and bravely led a revolt against the Romans after she had been public beaten and her daughters raped by Roman soldiers however the revolt was quashed, but her bravely is not forgotten.

This is nice but difficult to appreciate as its such a very busy area. Beware of pickpockets!!! Good views if big ben and parliament from here. You can get a cruise from this area too.

One of the best statues in London, often missed by people looking to take pictures of Big Ben or walk along Westminster Bridge as quick as possible to get to the London Eye; the souvenir shop does not help either.

The Boadicea Monument is situated at the end of Westminster Bridge, almost opposite Big Ben. It depicts Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni tribe, heroically riding in her scythed chariot during her campaign against the Romans around AD61. The monument is a very powerful image of a Queen who successfully defeated the Roman Ninth Legion and destroyed the capital of Roman... More

Boadicea was the Queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe who was leading the resistance to the occupation by the Roman Empire. This remarkable monument close to the Westminster Pier, showing her with the two daughters, is a work of Thomas Thornycroft and was erected in 1902 facing the Big Ben.

What a sight when you disembark from the Thames Clipper. Right next to you is this magnificent work of art which captures Boadicea's might and charisma. If you frame the photo of it well, you get Big Ben in the picture too. Just about one of the best shots of Westminster you could take.

London is full of statues and monuments. Boadicea is a really good one right by Westminster Bridge and Big Ben.

This monument is at such a busy area that it is easily overlooked as all eyes are on "Big Ben" nearby and people rush to cross the road.

My visits to Central London are becoming rarer now so it was nice to be able to view this again from a cruise up and down river on the ''Princess Pocahontas'' from Gravesend. Seeing it from the water it was also very nice to not have the view spoiled by the hideous tatty souvenir stall which sullies its front. I... More
