This is such an impressive Memorial to Prince Albert, commissioned by Queen Victoria that is situated right opposite the Royal Albert Hall and is a general meeting point for visitors to the area especially those waiting to go into the Albert hall Well worth a closer look to see the great detail here and the brilliant Victorian craftsmanship

Following an extensive restoration a few years ago by English Heritage, Albert now stands restored to his original glory for all to appreciate. He looks across the road at the fine concert hall that bears his name.
