Our story begins with ten beasts of myth and legend, painstakingly sculpted and arranged to form an imposing guard of honour at the entrance of Westminster Abbey. It was 2 June 1953 and they had been commissioned for a very important day – Her Majesty The Queen’s coronation. This is how the fascinating collection of Queen’s Beasts gained their name, with each one telling the story of the pivotal events and twists of fate that shaped the course of history, tracing royal bloodlines from medieval times to the present day.
