Lions and Tigers and Camels

20 March 2014

Region: London

You don’t need to go to the zoo to find wild animals, for London has any number of streets, places, closes and roads with wild animal names.  From Black Lion Hill to Tiger Way or Camel Road, there are hundreds.  And if you add streets where you can find statues of wild animals, there are thousands.  So if you’re looking for inspiration today, why not go on safari?

And there’s a bonus point for ‘old ale and sandwiches too’!
