Meet Octavius the Octopus

Octavius is probably the cheekiest animal in London! He lives on the gate of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on the banks of the River Thames, and he loves the river dearly, whether he is swimming in the water or exploring the river bank.


He loves participating in river life, and has a big wardrobe of dressing up clothes so that he can join in – as an artist at Tate modern, as a busker on Hungerford Bridge and lots of other costumes besides – as you will see! In Down by the Thames he shares his love and knowledge of London’s river, and shares all sorts of treasures with you as you spend the day together.
