Nicely detailed statue of a high kicking Jester. What more can you say. Worth a stroll to have a look while you're in the pedestrian walking area for the Shakespeare centre visit, one of the cafes or if you must...some very touristy trinket shops.

This appears at the far end of Henley Street not far from the Moorcroft Centre which is a pedestrianised street.

Love this statue at the top of Henley Street. It is so poignant of many of Shakespeare's jesters. It's a great photo opportunity and is a stunning creation too. If you go to Shakespeare's house, walk further up and visit this statue - it's well...More

The whole area is themed with Shakespeare in mind obviously and this is a lovely statue not far from The Shakespeare Centre. There are many coffee shops around and this is an ideal area for tourists.
