the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

The Elephant and Castle is a major road junction in the London Borough of Southwark. Though the name of the surrounding area is properly Newington, the proximity of the London Underground station has led to the area being more commonly called "Elephant and Castle". The name is derived from a local coaching inn.
