Geocache Description:

A cache on the south bank, visit at night best a it gives a great view of the Big Ben

The South Bank Lion was originally red in colour, due to it being located outside the Red Lion Brewery, which was demolished to make way for the Royal Festival Hall. Thanks to George VI the Lion was saved, and was moved outside Waterloo Station. When the station was made bigger in 1966 the Lion was moved to its current home. The lion was then renamed the ‘South Bank Lion’. The Coade Stone statue was designed by W.F. Woodington, and is 13 feet long and 12 feet high, and weighs over 13 tons.

Difficulty increased by half a star to take note of muggle factor.
