Top tip: Meet at the Left Lion

Beloved by locals as a famous ‘meeting place’, Nottingham’s Left Lion is one of two stone lions situated either side of the steps leading to the front entrance of the Council House.

The left one is affectionately known as Leo and the right is known as Oscar.

The two regal figures were sculpted by Joseph Else, principal of the Nottingham School of Art.

The lions, like the Council House, have become etched in the psyche of local people who will probably have clambered over them as children and used them as a meeting point with friends and ‘dates’ in adulthood.
