Where is it? #67…And the answer is…

August 28, 2013

We’re taking a break this week at Exploring London but we couldn’t resist posting a Where is it? for you. Can you identify where in London this picture was taken and what it’s of? If you think you can, leave a comment below. We’ll reveal the answer late this week. Good luck!

Sorry for the delay in getting the answer over. And well done to those who correctly named this as being at Guy’s Hospital in Southwark. Now a part of the Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (and home to King’s College London’s School of Medicine), the hospital was originally founded by Sir Thomas Guy in 1721. The statue is indeed that of Viscount Nuffield, one of the hospital’s benefactors. Keep an eye out of our upcoming entry on Sir Thomas as part of our ‘Famous Londoners’ series.
