The statue was very different the accompanying gardens were a pleasant surprise. The lane way has a toilet block and the gardens keep up the theme of Rocky horror.

Enjoy the statue of Riff Raff on the site of a historic theatre. Even the toilets are themed to Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I love that you can write a review on a statue! It’s really exciting and does wonders for my review count! Statue is in a part of town that is clearly being remoddled and that’s probably for the best! Someone added a scalf to old...More

I just happened on this statue whilst in Hamilton. I'm not a 'cult fan' but enjoyed 'Rocky Horror', so I guess why not put a statue here. It's an OK stature, and the plaque is very informative. Go for it!

A brilliant homage to one of Hamilton’s adopted sons. Very well laid out and informative and fantastic that somebody has gone to the trouble erecting such a monument

We saw this by accident as we were walking along the Main Street to the museum. It was quirky and interesting but to appreciate it fully you really need to be a fan of the movie.
