Statues of Sir Stamford Raffles

Getting there, what to see

Singapore’s founding father, Sir Stamford Raffles, currently has two statues erected in his honour. One is a bronze statue erected in front of¬†Victoria Theatre¬†and the other is a white poly-marble statue at North Boat Quay, the place where Sir Stamford Raffles is believed to have first landed in Singapore.
