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.

It's a real big statue in a city with a lot of statues. It's worth a look if you are in the area. It's kinda cool. But not worth going a long way out of your path.

Set on a busy junction in Holborn Circus this is a statue of Prince Albert on a horse, sculpted by Charles Bacon in 1873. At the base of the statue there are two female figures labelled "History" and "Peace".

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
