Gargoyle of the Day: Westminster Abbey, London

I’m quickly becoming obsessed with the gargoyles of Westminster in London. I think they just have such a unique character that sets them apart from the rest. This little guy is more of a grotesque than a true gargoyle, but his charm is exactly the variety that I’m talking about. You can see more of the Westminster gargoyles in this lovely post by Gargoyle Girl. Her first photo is my favorite.

    1. Hi there! It’s funny. I was just commenting on your goals post when I got this notification. There are lots of great gargoyles all throughout London and Paris. You can probably get a gargoyles guidebook, now that I think about it.
