    Walked past this three times without realising. Tatty, not well kept and hidden amongst the buildings.

    Not the best monument to a comedy genius and fans ought not to make a special trip to see it.

    A statue standing proud in the Bull Ring area. Not sure of Nelsons link to Brum, but a fine statue none the less.

    We saw The Sentinel on our way to the Jaguar Factory Tour. Very attractive piece of art for a roundabout.

    Don't think he's in quite the same spot, but he's back and a welcome return to the landscape of Victoria Square.

    The statue has been removed as part of the renovation works of the Centenary Square. The last Time I saw it was in Feb when I took this picture. It will be returning though and it is well worth seeking out.
    Boulton, Watt and Murdoch, nicknamed 'The Golden Boys' or 'The Carpet Salesmen' is an incredible "golden" statue.
    The three men pioneered the industrial revolution in late 18th century England. James Watt's improvements to the steam engine and William Murdoch's invention of gas lighting have made them famous throughout the world. Matthew Boulton, entrepreneur and industrialist, harnessed their talents in a company that made everything from tableware and copper coinage to steam engines. His home, Soho House, is now a museum. All three men are buried in St Mary's Church Handsworth, known as the 'Westminster Abbey of the Industrial Revolution.

    This is my kind of attraction. A sparkly rhino sited on a 60s building. Quirky, unique, fun. Loved rhino hunting in Chinatown!

    Colonel Fred Burnaby became a legend in his own Victorian lifetime which was cut short at the age of 42. He was killed in the Sudan by a spear through the throat on 17 January 1885 while serving as a senior commander in the famous, ultimately abortive expeditionary force sent to rescue General Gordon besieged in Khartoum. A man of immense physical strength, his party tricks are said to have included vaulting over billiard tables and twisting pokers into knots with bare hands. In 1882 a flock of French sheep in Normandy looked up to see him descending from the skies, the first man to cross the Channel by balloon. The obelisk itself is unremarkable and no description of the subject is displayed. From what I’ve read his links to Birmingham are tenuous but this remarkable character deserves to be known.

    Just so people are aware, this statue has been removed during re-development work in Chamberlain Square, so Thomas is currently in storage, pending the completion of the works.

    Lovely little monument to have your picture taken with. We must never forget those that have given their lives for others

    I have to agree with the previous reviewers who say this memorial is not good enough. It's small, it's hard to locate and is definitely not a fitting tribute to the many who died in 1974.

    Easy to locate the owner of the square outside the museum. Standing proudly on Victoria Square, this statue is worth a 5 minute stop to admire.

    Situated outside West Midlands Police training centre Tally Hi! on Pershore Road, Edgbaston. A suitable memorial to the grandfather of modern policing.

    Located on Centenary Square is Statue Of King Edward VII ,erected in 1913 ,when the square was revamped in the 1950's this statue was moved to Highgate Park but this proved a mistake,vandalism, graffiti covered and some bronze allegorical figures at the base of the statue stolen ,on the 100th anniversary of the king's death he was once again restored to Centenary Square, its a fine and well detailed statue, shows King Edward VII in full coronation regalia holding an orb and a sceptre, very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is easy to locate on Centenary Square.
    Most definitely well worth a look if you're in the area.
