Type of Attraction

Captain Robert Falcon Scott was a British Royal Navy officer and explorer who led two expeditions to the Antarctic regions: the Discovery expedition of 1901-1904 and the ill-fated Terra Nova expedition of 1910-1913. His widow, Kathleen Scott, sculpted a statue of Robert Falcon Scott that stands at the intersection of Oxford Terrace and Worcester Street in Christchurch. The statue was completed in Carrara, Italy, in April 1916, but was not shipped until October 1916 because of World War I. The statue was damaged in the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake and was reinstated in October 2017.
