Yet another of London’s many statues from the Victorian era, but one of the more interesting ones. It shows Albert on horseback, doffing his hat. The sculpture has quite a strong sense of movement. It stands on a plinth made of pink granite, which gives it a warmth many monuments lack. There are nice bronze sculptures of female figures fixed to the sides of the plinth, representing Peace and History. The only problem is the location on the central reservation in the middle of the approach to a particularly busy road junction at Holborn Circus, so care is needed if you want to get up close to it.

Indeed you may pass this statue every day, walking or on the bus, and never take any notice. It is in the centre of a busy road and worth a glance without risking crossing the traffic.

Located in Holborn Circus is yet another tribute to Prince Albert, the Prince Consort to Queen Victoria. The statue itself is of Prince Albert shows him seated on a horse in a Field Marshall military uniform. On the pedestal are basal relief of scenes from his life and the pedestal is flanked by female statues personifying Peace and History. It's a nice statues, not not worth a major detour to see it.

This is a very nice statue of Albert on a horse raising his hat and it has interesting panels on the sides. Unfortunately the statue is located in the centre of a busy road and so it is impossible to get a good look. Note though that this is not the Albert Memorial located opposite the Albert Hall as some reviewers seem to be getting confused.
