City Pride

Lions of Bath (Click on photo for full image size)

Stopping off for lunch in the beautiful city of Bath, it was plain to see that something was afoot. This summer, over 100 life-size lion sculptures have been specially commissioned and now, while prowling around the elegant Georgian crescents and terraces, you can bag your own big cat (with camera only!). Each one is sponsored by a business or community and individually decorated. They all form an impressive piece of public art and are great fun to either happen across by chance or to go on a lion safari across the city. At the end of the summer they will be auctioned off for charity and so you have until mid-September to see them in situ. Visit the Lions Of Bath website for more information and a full list of lions.
