A stone carved statue honouring King George V. It's tricky to see the detail on it as the plinth it stands on is rather high. Standing further away from the base means you can see a bit more of it.

A lovely statue opposite the palace of Westminster. It is very high and difficukt to see a lot of the detail in it. A fitting tribute however to the Queen's grandfather.

This statue is located directly opposite The Palace of Westminster. It is beautifully carved in stone and has a fabulous backdrop of Westminster Abbey.

A fairly basic statue placed on a very high base that makes it a little harder to see than if the base was less dominant.

Sort of unimpressive. I thought it would say something on the stone base, but no such luck. Before you exit the garden, there he stands for all to see.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
