When we planned to visit the Lac Lèman area, we had to choose a place to be our base for four or five days, from where we would make all the necessary short trips. We chose Vevey, and it proved to be an excellent choice....More

Clearly Charlie Chaplin has left indelible memories for a few generations and Vevey pays a significant tribute to Charlie Chaplin - certainly, one for the enthusiasts of the famous character - young and old alike. The location is also great and is surround by some...More

This statue is on the promenade near the fork. The sunset on the promenade is very pretty. The statue is given a fresh rose to hold each day

If you're a big Chaplin fan, maybe it means more to you,. For me it was just another statue. Probably the museum (which we didn't see) is more interesting.

Busloads of people come to take photos of themselves or their friends with Charlie, who is given a fresh rose to hold every day. He stands in front of the Alimentarium food museum which has pleasant shady gardens full of fruit, vegetables and herbs.

The tribute to the greatest man of satire is too small, albeit important. Even Gogol's statue is more impressive. Alas...

Hi. Just to add - depending on your physical abilities, you could walk from Montreux to Vevey in about 45 minutes. It is a beautiful walk along the coast. Have a great trip!

Charlie Chaplin statue in Leicester Square (26 Replies)
As we wander throughout a city, we like to see interesting/unique statues, etc .... So, with that in mind there was a statue of Charlie Chaplin in Leicester Square but I read that it was removed a year ago? I am not able to ascertain if it was put back.... can someone tell me if it is or isn't? Thanks

No, Charlie Chaplin along with a few other notable statues, have all been removed for their own good as the weather was taking it's toll. Only Shakespeare survived Apparently
