I have described this and its significance in previous reviews. Being here the day after 22nd March added poignancy to my visit and this very martial sculpture had some memorial flowers at the base of its large plinth. I have posted a number of photographs taken on the day. This warrior Queen of the ancient British Iceni people who led... More

Knowing the significance of monuments enhances your visit. Boudicea "The Warrior" Queen Iceni was born in 8 a.d. and died fighting Nero's Roman army in 60 a.d. She is considered Great Britain's 1st Hero. I have been doing my geneology and found that Boudicea is my 67th Great Grandmother. This made the visit so much more meaningful.

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.

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.
