In the eastern part of the City of London, exciting sculptures from some of the world’s leading artists can be found in the heart of the Square Mile.

For a great introduction to Sculpture in the City check out the new video from London & Partners as part of 'The London Story'.

Visitors, workers and residents can discover art installations, including the distinctive life-sized figures by Antony Gormley, three steel dinosaurs by Jake and Dinos Chapman and Secret Affair by Jim Lambie.  

Participating artists have worked on site with the curatorial team to select and position their work in response to the surrounding architecture and built environment.
