Albert Memorial

Located in London’s Kensington Gardens opposite the Albert Hall, the memorial is a lavish construction of Victorian excess to remember Prince Albert, Consort of Queen Victoria. Amongst his many achievements he is probably best remembered for The Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace in 1851, which can be seen written on the book he holds in his right hand.

Tours of the Albert Memorial are run by the Royal Parks which take you inside the railings with a very knowledgeable tour guide to see the craftsmanship up close. Tickets can be booked through the Royal Parks events page.
