It was originally laid out in 1665 and the public Leicester Square Gardens were opened in 1874, with flower beds, lawns and busts of famous residents of the area. The bust of Newton is by William Calder Marshall and stands near the Newton Gate at the south west corner of the gardens. It has been seriously eroded by the weather.
