  • This monument is located in Waterloo Square. It commemorates the people who died during the Crimean War of 1854-1856. In it, war reporters talked about the poor medical treatment of wounded soldiers, which led Tore-A War Secretary Sidney Herbert to send nurses to the front for the first time. One of these nurses was Florence Nightingale, who improved conditions in hospitals and saved the lives of numerous soldiers. She is honored with a statue in front of the Crimean War Memorial. She was known as the 'Lady with the Lamp', so she is depicted holding a lamp in her hand. Next to her is a statue of Sidney Herbert that facilitated Nightingale's work.

  • This war memorial commemorates the Allied victory in the Crimean War. Just above the pedestal stands three guardsmen representing the Grenadiers, Scots and the Coldstream Guards. Above the three Guardsmen stands the allegorical figure of Victory, her arms outstretched presenting the laurel leaves of victory. A truly magnificent memorial to one of the hardest war Britain has ever fought.
  • I went there to see Florence Nightingale statue. Florence Nightingale is a great character. She is my idol. It was amazing to take pictures with it !
