Street Art The celebrated street artist Banksy, has on occasion chosen Victoria to showcase his work. The Tate has attracted his attention, as has Parliament. Some of his efforts don't last too long though unfortunately...
Statue of Boudicca The chariot on the statue by Westminster Bridge was clamped by Banksy. It wasn't spotted for a week.
Do Not Cross Banksy hung a fake picture in the Tate with a Police tape across the front. It didn't last long but attracted some attention before it was removed by staff. It is now in the Lost property department.
Petrolhead suicide This comment on the Iraq war was positioned opposite Parliament by Banksy as part of the 'Stop the War' campaign.
CND soldiers Another Banksy war protest left opposite Parliament, this time showing soldiers warily finishing a CND symbol.
Sperm Alarm This Banksy appeared next to the passport office by Victoria Station. It was chiselled out of the wall and put on Ebay shortly afterwards.
Paparazzi Rat Assumed to be a Banksy but not yet claimed, the rat appeared in Warwick Square in Pimlico.
Not a Photo Opportunity A view of Westminster from the Southbank was stencilled with the words "This is not a photo opportunity''.
Mind the Crap Banksy managed to stencil the steps of the Tate Gallery with the words 'Mind the Crap' before the Turner Prize event began. It wasquickly obscured once the organisers realised.
Mortar Divers A stencil of rats firing divers into the Thames can be seen on the Southbank opposite Parliament. Banksy commentators insist that the divers were added afterwards and are not part of the original, which of course makes more sense.
Radioactive Material In 2004, a warning sign about the lake in St James's Park being radioactive was placed by the bridge. The Metropolitan Police made it look far more realistic by stationing a community support officer on the bridge nearby telling people not to be alarmed.
