A Greek & Roman Mythology Walk Around London III: Pall Mall and St James

Tony Keen

Join mythology teacher and scholar Tony Keen on a tour around central London, looking for figures from Greco-Roman myth in London.

From the seventeenth to twentieth centuries, London was an imperial capital. It wanted to show it was an imperial capital through its architecture, and the architectural vocabulary of empire was that of ancient Rome and (to a lesser extent) Greece. Part of that architectural vocabulary was the incorporation of mythological figures, in statuary or relief sculpture. This tour begins in Trafalgar Square, and makes its way along Pall Mall and the Mall, taking in along the way several Britannias, Minervas, and other mythological figures. This is a very different look at London, and will show you things you’ve (probably) never seen before.
