Mary Seacole was a Jamaican nurse during the Crimean War so it is fitting that her statue is in the garden of St Thomas's Hospital.
It is a life sized statue of a truly deserving woman.

Mary Seacole statue in the gardens of St Thomas Hospital by sculpture Martin Jennings' is believed to be the first statue in the UK dedicated to a black woman. Overlooking the Houses of Parliament, it is a fitting memorial to the Jamaican-born nurse who tended the sick of the Crimean war.

The statue of Mary Seacole, the Jamaican Crimean War nurse is located at St. Thomas Hospital, overlooking the Houses of Parliament. Her courage and compassion as a nurse provided soldiers with food, nursing care and a morning dispensary during the 19th century Crimean War.
