Cleopatra's Needle, with two sphinxes guarding either side. I didn't find any info on the sphinxes but I suspect they were created at the time the obelisk was brought to London, to provide additional atmosphere'. If you look closely, you'll be able to see damage to the Needle and sphinx base foundations. This damage was caused by a road-side bomb from German airplanes on September 4, 1917.
