Overview

The Gower Memorial was presented to Stratford-upon-Avon in 1888 by Lord Ronald Sutherland Gower. Cast in bronze from Gower's own designs and models, the principal bronze mounted on a stone plinth depicts Shakespeare seated. The other statues, at ground level, depict four of the Bard's best known characters—namely, Hamlet, Prince Hal, Falstaff and Lady Macbeth—representing philosophy, history, comedy and tragedy respectively. Situated in Bancroft Gardens near to the road known as Bridgefoot, the memorial is a truly inspiring sight.
