In this set, Pawns are terraced houses, Big Ben is the Rook, with the London Eye playing the Knight. The Shard lends its elegance and might to the role of the Queen. No other building than Canary Wharf would be better suited to play the King, and this piece stands at four and a half inches tall.
The set is supplied with a folding card chess board.

Available in buffed pewter and metallic black the London Skyline Chess Set is hand-cast in the UK using traditional methods, and comes supplied with our unique Map Chess Board.
Each of the pieces is cast using a unique resin and metal compound. This makes the pieces naturally weighty and allows them to be polished to a shine, giving them a metallic quality.
Hand-made moulds ensure that the architectural details of each building are beautifully captured and each piece has a hand applied soft felt base.
This set comes with our map board and alternative options are available.
