We visited this place in early June. This is a very good place to visit in Kolkata to feel its heritage of British empire. Though the crowd is very high you may try choosing off time or working days to visit the place. You will also find lot other things nearby to visit and feel the beauty of Kolkata heritage.

It is has a magnificient palatial exterior, the area has a waft of history around it. The presence of the British is inevitable in this place. But there were unruly people in the ticketing counter, once you enter the hall to experience you will immediately have a frown on your face. Bunch of unscrupulous and ill-mannered people. Pushing everyone to... More

Liked the green lawn before entering the memorial hall. You will feel the elegance of British dynasty while walking through the hall. Please careful about the weekly holiday to go inside the hall.

This is a place to visit when you are in Kolkata. It is a fantatsic building built as a tribute to Queen Victoria. Take time to explore the building but also spend time in the wonderfully laid out gardens

I'm a resident of west Bengal and haven't visited Victoria memorial in a while. However when I did last Friday, I was in for a shock. Walls lined with betel but juice, especially in the stairways, walls literally falling apart, cracked floors, dust covered displays. How can we let a national treasure go to waste this way? Coming to why... More

like Belur Math, if you can only visit 2 things in Kolkata, this is the other. a absolutely stunning piece of architecture right in the middle of the city, simply breathtaking to walk around, and although there is some reconstruction work on one side, the sheer size of this building allows you to disappear from the works and get lost...

An imposing structure reminding us of the British era. The lush green lawns are well maintained and add to the beauty of this monument. Its a beautiful sight in the morning on a rainy day.

Very good place and must visit place in kolkata. It is a good place and interesting one if and only if you have interest in visiting the memorials alone. Because there will be some persons married and adult lovers who will distracting your mind and destroying the memorial's real value. Other than that it is a awesome place with lawn,... More
