The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?)

I'm 150 metres from a Holocaust Museum. I'm standing between two statuesque big cats. I can see a red double-decker. I'm 100 metres from a castle that shares a name with a vegetable. I'm in a country that last won an Olympic medal in 2000. This road bears the name of a revolutionary who died a violent death in 1903. If I flew around the globe at this latitude I'd pass over the shallowest Great Lake. The mountain visible to the south-west has a relatively modern religious structure on its summit.

Feature Foxer

The 127-cell honeycomb below is a fancy form of wordsearch in which every cell is used, and words can curl and zigzag but never overlap. Each hive foxer has a unique theme (some past themes: Harry Potter, gold, postage stamps, and The 39 Steps) Identifying this theme is a vital part of the defoxing process. Today you are looking for twenty-three words.
