“Good photo opp!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

It's cute statue along the lakeside promenade, surrounded by gardens. It is a good opportunity for a photo, but don't expect to spend much time there.

“It's Chaplin but could have been better.”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I visited Vevey on a somewhat rainy Monday when a lot of attractions were closed. Perhaps this coloured my view!
I walked along the lakeside promenade with the specific intention of seeing this famous statute. Chaplin came to live in this part of Switzerland after being driven out of the USA in the 1950s by the McCarthy witch hunt.
It is natural that Vevey wold want to honour him. However, I found that the statue was only recognisable as Chaplin by the trademark baggy trousers and cane. To me. the facial features did not look like him.
The statue is worth going to see but I think that Vevey could have done a bit better to honour Charlie.
