    Beautiful memorial at the base of Kensington Gardens, the Albert Memorial is a very "deep" memorial because of the multiple layers of stories it tells: Victoria's love for Albert, GB's height of world colonization with the Union Jack never saw a setting sun, and the wonderful workmanship that is this memorial.

    Albert Memorial is located in Kensington Gardens. It's a lovely little attraction in the park and is supposed to be a memorial tribute to Prince Albert.

    So tacky and ott it's almost camp. Incredible testament to Victorian sensibilities about empire. And you don't have to stay long.

    This memorial is located in Kensington Gardens directly north of Royal Albert Hall. Very ornate and worth a look if you are in the vicinity.

    The beautiful Albert Memorial was commissioned by Queen Victoria as a tribute to her husband, Prince Albert after he died at the age of 41.

    Built for Queen Victoria as a memorial to her husband Albert, this stands opposite the hall named after him and on the edge of Hyde Park

    Beautiful Memorial. Many other popular attractions within walking distance. This is a must see. It is with in walking distance to the parliament buildings, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Churchill cabinet war rooms, and many other popular attractions.

    Always reminds me of Oscar Wilde's wonderful tale "The Happy Prince" about the golden statue of a kindly prince and a generous swallow.
