Find Robert Falcon Scott at Waterloo Place

A life sized statue of the explorer Robert Falcon Scott stands proudly in Waterloo Place, standing on a lofty plinth and made of bronze.

The plaque beneath the statue reminds us that Scott died with his companions returning from the South Pole in 1912, with a quote from his diary:

"Had we lived I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood endurance and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman these rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale"
