A bronze bust of Queen Victoria with crown and sash. The monument is sheltered by a free-standing canopy in the form of a baldachino with ribbed dome with finial above semi-circular sandstone arches with marble spandrels. The arches are supported by free-standing granite columns on pedestals which form part of the podium to the whole monument on a stepped base. The fountain basin incorporated in the podium to the monument, with the dome flanked by four urn finials. There are coats of arms carved on two sides of the pedestal, behind iron railings, presumably for protection against vandalism.
