The Clarkson Memorial, located in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, England, is a memorial to Thomas Clarkson (1760 – 1846), a central figure in the campaign against the slave trade in the British empire.

The memorial consists of statue mounted on a platform. Above this, rises a canopy, reaching into a spire. The whole structure is 68 feet (20.6 m) high. On three of the four sides are carved bas-reliefs, representing other figures involved in the campaign against the slave trade, in order, William Wilberforce, Granville Sharp and a manacled slave in a beseeching attitude. The fourth side features an inscription to the memory of Clarkson.
