A stone pedestal supports a marble statue of Victoria. On her head, she has a small crown with a veil. In her right hand, she holds a sceptre, and in the left, she holds a lotus blossom to signify the Imperial reign in India. She wears a heavy velvet cloak with a light satin dress and a sash as Sovereign of the Order of the Garter. The statue was originally in the Market Place, Abingdon, erected to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887. It was moved to its current site 45 metres away in 1946.
