Charles George Gordon Statue Reviews
A good resemblance of the Individual and standing proud in the Embankment Gardens. Good reminder of times past. more »
One of the great military “heroes” on British history. His death in Sudan filled the empire with grief. He had a fascinating life that ended violently. Another monument within the Whitehall Gardens more »
The statue of General Charles George Gordon stands in the heart of the historic centre of London in the Victoria Embankment Gardens. It stands amongst the many other statues, memorials and monuments on the embankment of the other great contributors of the United Kingdom. The statue is a tribute to General Charles George Gordon. And is known for his leadership in the Crimean War, Second Opium War and Taiping Rebellion. Sadly he died after a year long siege of Khartoum in the Mahdist War where he was badly let down by the political establishment who failed to send a relief force for a year. The statue stands on a pedestal and shows the general in uniform and in a thoughtful pose. At the foot of the pedestal are two bronze reliefs, one with Fortune & Faith, and the other with Charity & Justice. Overall, a very appealing monument.
Well worth a visit.
