A Greek & Roman Mythology Walk Around London IV: The South Bank

Tony Keen

Join mythology teacher and scholar Tony Keen on a tour along the river Thames, 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 the South Bank of the Thames, taking in along the way Minervas, Muses, and other mythological figures. This is a very different look at London, and will show you things you’ve (probably) never seen before.
