Oscar Wilde Statue
Oscar Wilde Statue on the edge of theatreland.
Location: Charing Cross, London, SW1Y
Description: Oscar Wilde was one of the greatest playwrights in the English language, London played homage to his wit and wisdom with a public monument on the edge of theatreland. The story behind this historic monument began in the 1980s and early 90s when some his fans remarked that there was no public memorial to him in the very city where he lived and his plays were most performed. One of those fans, the film-maker, painter and author Derek Jarman therefore suggested a statue.
