Queen Victoria's memorial to her beloved husband, Albert, warrants a visit from all. Sir Gilbert Scott designed the folly in 1872, and Queen Victoria unveiled it in 1876. Prince Albert sits on his throne holding the catalog of the Great Exhibition of 1851. Beneath him lie sculptures of the museums, colleges, and institutions that he inspired, as well as marble statues of animals representing the different continents. Allegorical figures of Agriculture, Commerce, Manufacture and Engineering also adorn the memorial. The Albert Memorial is especially beautiful when shining in the glow of the evening sun or when lit up at night. You'll find it at the southernmost part of Hyde Park , along the stretch of road known as Kensington Gore, opposite the Royal Albert Hall .
The Albert Memorial is an exquisite monument in the Kensington area. It's quite tall and imposing. The fine details on the monument are impressive, and it's a beautiful sight to admire on your way around London.
