Where is it?…#39

The latest in the series in which we ask you to identify where in London this picture was taken and what it’s of. If you think you can identify this picture, leave a comment below. We’ll reveal the answer early next week. Good luck!

As was guessed, this is indeed a detail from the controversial Queen Elizabeth Gate in Hyde Park, close to Hyde Park Corner. Commonly referred to as the “Queen Mother Gates”, in a project instigated by Prince Michael of Kent they were commissioned in 1991 to mark the Queen Mother’s 90th birthday. The 120ft by 21ft stainless steel gates, designed by Giuseppe Lund, feature a much commented upon lion and white unicorn created by sculptor David Wynne. The gates cost £1.5 million to construct.

  1. No. It’s that leaf work / iron work over his shoulder – plus it looks horribly new…it’s not that wretched lion and thingy gate near Hyde Park is it.

  2. Ah we have a background clue here – looks like a London park – Battersea Park perhaps. Maybe Hampton Court gates along by the river.
