Ronald Reagan Statue



Ronald Reagan Statue

Statue unveiled to former US president Ronald Reagan.

Location: Grosvenor Square, Mayfair

Description: This 10-foot bronze statue was specially commissioned to recognise Mr Reagan's contribution to ending the Cold War and was unveiled in July 2011 by Condoleeza Rice.

A piece of the Berlin Wall will also be installed in front of the plinth.

The statue stands outside the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square, opposite the statue of President Dwight Eisenhower.

Lady Thatcher said of him: Ronald Reagan was a great president and a great man. A true leader for our times. He held clear principles and acted upon them with purpose.

Through his strength and his conviction he brought millions of people to freedom as the iron curtain came down.

It was a pleasure to be his colleague and his friend and I hope this statue will be a reminder to future generations of the debt we owe him.
