Understand the statue is connected with Birmingham commemorating Trafalgar day. Not sure of the actual connection as Birmingham is hardly near the sea. Nice statue in a central location where many people will see it

A statue of a great man, unfortunately too modest and placed in a secluded place. Should have been given more attention...

Beautiful statue surrounded by Birmingham's newest shopping attraction. This statue has been in Birmingham since 1810 and nobody would be more surprised than Nelson to see him end up surrounded by shops.
