The Albert Memorial is an amazing memorial at the southern edge of Hyde Park. It's just over the road from Royal Albert Hall, so if you're in South Kensington you should pop up for a look at both.

Victoria loved Albert in storybook fashion. She was devastated by his loss. She spared no expense in the design and creation of the memorial as a measure of that devotion. Impressive

If you are in the area, or like architecture on a grand scale, this is an outstanding piece of Victorian 'over the top' architecture. Near the Science museum and within easy walk, 5minutes. Slightly up hill, past the royal Albert Hall, a circular building, across the road and you are there. Peter M

This was my third trip to London, and also the first time I saw the Albert Memorial. What an impressive monument! After the Houses of Parliament, it is for sure my favourite spot in this magnificent city. Plus its location is great, cause besides checking out the memorial you can also see Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, the Natural History Museum,... More

We had enjoyed a long walk from our Paddington hotel across Kensington Gardens to Kensington Palace and then on to Kensington High Street. From Kensington High Street, we returned to the gardens and followed the path, heading in the general direction of Royal Albert Hall. As we neared Royal Albert Hall, we came across the Albert Memorial. We had seen... More
