Spot the astounding pride of Born Free Foundation bronze lions prowling the Chewton Glen grounds, created by Love The Last – each sculpture is a celebration of Elsa the lioness, Born Free’s original inspiration and a continual symbol of hope for wildlife.

Did you know these beautiful Born Free Foundation bronze lions seen across our grounds are now available to purchase and take home? If you're interested in purchasing one yourself, simply follow the link below.

Discover the lions on the Chewton Glen estate

Seek out each member of the pride in their New Forest habitat; from Christian, the cub purchased from Harrods and successfully returned to the wild, to Makena, the Kenyan lioness living in the Born Free-protected Meru National Park, now with cubs of her own. Each unique lion on the trail has their own tale to tell, with a special affinity to Born Free; all are also available to purchase.
