An elaborate memorial, opened in 1872, commemorating the death of Prince Albert. So much detail! (Too much detail?) Victoria undoubtedly loved Albert! At the four corners of the memorial, the beautiful marble figures representing Africa, America, Asia and Europe are worth looking at on their...More

This is probably the best monument I've ever seen. I could've watched it for hours, and it had so many great details worth seeing, but unfortunately I couldn't spend all day there. There's also plenty of museums nearby and The Royal Albert Hall is just...More

One of the purposes of nearby Victoria and Albert Museum was to educate the public in good taste. The taste displayed in Albert Memorial is questionable to say the least. Still, it is fun to walk by and look at the overloaded monument. Brings out...More

This monument in Kensington Garden is rally hard to miss and is a great way to show love for Queen Victoria’s true love. The golden statue atop a high platform is very eye catching. Well worth some time.

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And

got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the

walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
