Where is elephant and castle street in London England?
There isn't a street called Elephant and Castle in London but there is a small but important area by that name with an underground station named after it. The area originally got its name from a 'pub' which was situated there but now long gone. The present area is mainly a large road intersection with the convergence of different routes approaching central London from the south and southeast of London and lies about 1 mile south of the 'City of London'. Although its proper name is Elephant and Castle, Londoners abbreviate the area's name to 'The Elephant'.
