This windswept maiden by Lynn Chadwick is tricky to photograph but easy to admire. You'll find it at the base of the Gherkin.

Looking like a minimalist homage to the Borg, this simple black cube contains a secret. Box Sized DIE featuring Unfathomable Ruination by João Onofre is actually a gig venue. A death metal band will perform inside, but the walls are soundproofed meaning nobody will hear. It's for the best.

Another highlight sees Richard Wentworth dangle a library of books from the ceiling of Leadenhall Market. All very Harry Potter.

Our favourite piece is hidden  in Bury Court. Shapes in Cloud I; IV; V by Peter Randall-Page comprises three marble spheroids of such beautiful texture, you'll want to lick them. Don't.

Antony Gormley, of course, but a chance to see one of his first body sculptures on the pavement beneath the Cheesegrater. This one, known as Parallel Field, is only sticking around til October.

Now in its fourth year, Sculpture in the City has returned to the streets of the Square Mile. Fourteen sculptures — many by famous artists — have been fused with pavements, walls and ceilings, bringing a few droplets of creativity to a part of town otherwise characterised by corporate offices and building sites. In variation and ability to surprise, this is the best set yet.

The sculptures will remain in place until May 2015, so you've plenty of time to hunt them all down.
