Bronze statues of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill sitting 'talking' together on a bench in Mayfair (where Old Bond Street meets New Bond Street). This statue is called 'Allies' and was a gift from the Bond Street Association (the shops and businesses of Bond Street) to the City of Westminster to commemorate 50 years of peace. Lawrence Holofcener, a sculptor with dual nationality created this landmark and it was unveiled on 2 May 1995 by Princess Margaret.

This is a fun photo opportunity as there's enough room to squeeze yourself between these iconic gentlemen and join in their conversation!
