Burns Monument

The Burns monument, 1830, was designed by Thomas Hamilton to house a marble statue of Robert Burns by sculptor John Flaxman (1755-1826).

Hamilton’s design was inspired by the ancient Choragic Monument of Lysicrates in Athens, erected in celebration of the arts and in particular of the chorus. The garden is planted with flowers referenced by Burns in his poetry.
