Before I left London, I promised the Burns team that I would look out for memorials to the bard on my travels. Supposedly, there are more monuments/memorials/tribute-type-things to him than any other writer.
I haven’t found a statue just yet, but on my walks to Observatory, the next ‘hood over, I noticed the following:
Burns is sandwiched between Addison,
who I think would have been good for a laugh, and Coleridge.
Coleridge would have been more of a ‘like totally man, I’m on this way out awesome trip man, it’s like totally dark.’If I find any more Burns tributes, I’ll post them. Watch this space.
