For most people, their first port of call to see a dinosaur in London is the Natural History Museum in Kensington. But there are plenty of other dinos dotted around town, at least from time to time — as these pictures prove.

With thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via the Londonist Flickr pool: Andrew Smith, Andy Council, BLTP Photo, Christina, Dave McGowan, Edward Scoble, Ian Muttoo, Kieron Helsdon, Matt, pirate internet, Steve Reed and Zefrog.
