British Museum
   
 Great Russell Street, West End




 Built in 1823-47 donated from Sir Hans Sloane(1660-1753), to house its collection of antiquities and the National Library, the British Museum is one of the richest cultural institutions in Europe. The architect, Robert Smirke, deployed an uncompromising classicism which is typical of the first half of the 19th century.

Statue of Eros/Angel
  
 Piccadilly Circus, West End



 The famous statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus is one of the symbols of London. Originally called the Shaftesbury Monument, having been erected as a memorial to the philanthropist Lord Shaftesbury in 1892. The actual figure rises above a fountain, which is made in bronze, but Eros is made out of aluminium, at that time a rare and novel material. The sculptor was Alfred Gilbert RA, and he used the fountain idea as an excuse for incorporating a variety of fishes and crustaceous life in the design.
