The top 20 public sculptures in London

London is jam-packed full of beautiful art, and it's not all tucked away in museums and galleries. So much of it is out in the streets, waiting to be admired, touched and clambered on (don't climb Nelson's Column, you will be arrested). So we pulled together a shortlist of the best public sculptures in London, and then we opened the vote out to the public. It shows that Londoners love art, they love fun, and they love having sculptures available to all.

He sees his installation as a giant object made of many parts, all of which move and interact. But even though it’s all choreographed like a whacked-out art ballet, it’s designed to constantly realign in new ways. You’ll never see it the same way twice.
