Lion Tusk Trail (3)

Tusk Lion Trail

The lions have landed in Covent Garden and we are thrilled to be a part of the world wide Tusk Lion Trail 2021. Our lions can be found in Central Avenue of the Market Building and at the Piazza entrance to the Royal Opera House. The lion inside the Market Building has been designed by Adam Dant who was inspired by the many London pubs named after the lion with motifs usually seen on the classic British tavern. The other lion is designed by Paul Onditi and reflects the growing impact and challenge of human wildlife conflict faced by communities living alongside national parks.
