This curiously named area Elephant and Castle acquired its moniker from a local pub of the same name. There are numerous fables and stories about where the pub’s name originated, the most credible being that the site of the pub was home to The Worshipful Company of Cutlers, which is a royally chartered guild for the trade of knife making. Their coat of arms, features an elephant with a castle on its back. The elephant is believed to represent the ivory that was once used to make knife handles.

The area, officially known as Newington, was part of the manor of Walworth, belonging to the Archbishop of Canterbury. It started to be referred to as Elephant and Castle in the mid-19th century. A major roundabout junction, it has gone through major changes over the years. Being a primary route to the southeast coast of England, it had a thriving working and middle class population during the early 20th century. It was considered the ‘Piccadilly Circus’ of south London with a large department store and a cinema that seated over 3000 people called the Trocadero.

Unfortunately Elephant and Castle was heavily bombed during World War II and post war regeneration did little to return it to its previous vitality. There is now a great deal of investment in the area and it is being gentrified and parts have become conservation areas, where architecturally important buildings are being restored.

Elephant and Castle Station

Elephant and Castle Tube Station was built in 1890, providing access to the City and was part of the first deep level tube. It is the southern end of the Bakerloo Line. The Elephant and Castle Station is made up of two buildings that were built at different times to operate both the Bakerloo Line and the Northern Line. The buildings are separated by a major traffic intersection. Neither building has escalators, so accessing the station must either be by spiral stairs or lifts.
