"The Swiss Cantons" Trafalgar Square Tip by easyoar

  The Swiss Cantons
by easyoar
 
 

If you read my earlier tip about the Swiss Clock in Leicester Square, you will remember that I mentioned there was a big signpost out the front showing the emblems of all the Swiss cantons.

A canton is a region, similar I suppose to a US state (e.g. California, New England, Virginia etc) and has semi-autonomous powers.

This is quite a colourful sign, and you often see tourists having their picture taken again it.

As before, this sign is Piccadilly Circus end of Leicester Square, so take the Underground to Piccadilly Circus and walk down

Address: Piccadilly Circus, SW1 -> Leicester Square
Directions: Piccadilly Circus tube and walk to Leicester Square
