Intriguing place

Wonderful building


A series of bronze elephants have been installed around Spitalfields Market and the local area, with 21 elephants now roaming the plains. And would you believe it, this isn’t their first appearance in the capital Yes, these are the same elephants you may have seen out at Marble Arch last year: a herd of twenty orphan elephants and one mother, who’ve apparently upped sticks and moved across town whilst we’ve been confined indoors. And whilst they’re extremely cute to look at, they’re there for a serious reason: to raise awareness of poaching, habitat destructions, and ecosystem changes, all of which threaten the existence of elephants in the wild.

We had lunch at The Grocer a Young's Pub
