The Albert Memorial is not far from Kensington Palace and quite conspicuous. The design and artworks are so elaborate and lavish. Lot of photo ops and viewing is free.

I do not think you can go to London and Not see the Albert Memorial. It is impressive and represents the Height of Victorian architecture and Symbolism. This was Built at the rising tide of British Imperialism and it shows with India, Africa, and Asia...More

If you've studied Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, you absolutely have to see her tribute to him. Its beautiful to walk around the entire thing, and take it all in. V&A museum short walk from here- also a must.

This monument really is spectacular. I stumbled across it by accident and couldn't quite believe what I was seeing. Beautiful, full of detail, huge, not like anything I've seen before. Situated opposite the Royal Albert Hall.

We walked past this on the way to our hotel and marvelled at the sheer scale of it! It is absolutely huge and has some amazing detail. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

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
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
