The Queen is well known for her love of dogs, and corgis have become a recognised symbol of her 70-year reign. Her majesty has owned an estimated 30 corgis and dorgis (and corgi mixes) during this time.

They have travelled with her by boat, helicopter, car, plane, and train sat with her for photographs and announced her arrival in a room. Three of her corgis famously walked with her to James Bond’s waiting helicopter in the opening of the 2012 London Olympics with one of them doing a barrel roll on the carpet.

In honour of this and to celebrate her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, the Northbank, Victoria, Victoria Westminster and Whitehall BIDs are hosting a corgi trail across our footprints from 31st May through to the end of July.

Decorated by different contemporary artists and named after the Queen’s dogs, 19 corgis will be in public gardens, stations, lobbies and windows.

We are inviting locals and visitors to follow our trail and look out for each unique corgi.

Artist Involvement
We reached out to 19 London artists to design the corgis. Some artworks have a traditional look while others are inspired by the places the Queen has travelled, and the outfits she has worn, and some are simply artist interpretations. Each corgi has a plaque alongside it which details the name of the artist and the inspiration behind the design.
