Prince Albert Memorial is located opposite the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington Gardens. In memory of her husband who tragically died of typhoid at the age of 42, Queen Victoria ordered the memorial to be built. The monument was built using public donation & Queen Victoria only paid for Prince Albert’s statue. It took 10 years to complete & Prince Albert’s glided bronze statue is in a sitting position holding the programme to The Great Exhibition in 1851 which he had started & proven to be a success. His statue lies on a plinth. At all 4 corners surrounding the memorial are figurines to depict the continents of Europe, Asia, Africa & America. There are other figurines to represent manufacture, commerce, agriculture & engineering in which Prince Albert played a significant role in developing. At the base of the memorial, you can see celebrated painters, poets, sculptors, musicians & architects. They have been added to show Prince Albert’s passion & contribution to the art industry. Due to major restoration works carried out in 1990s, the monument is one of the best in British history. Be dazzled by the brilliance of the statue. It looks exactly like gold in the afternoon. I was quite taken by it & I’m sure you would too. The air around you would do you a lot of good too.

We came here for a wander whilst waiting on the nearby Science Museum opening. Situated in Kensington Gardens directly opposite the Royal Albert Hall stands this magnificent memorial dedicated to Prince Albert. Gothic in style it is a sight to behold. Striking and imposing it dominates the park. Well worth a look/see if you’re in the area.

Like a High Gothic spaceship, the Albert Memorial is both a celebration of Prince Albert's life and a celebration of the British Empire. Prince Albert sits at the centre surrounded by friezes and statues. Prince Albert tragically died of typhoid in 1861 when he was only 42, and Victoria never appears to have got over the death of the man whom she loved - the ultimate love story. He sits here, holding the catalogue of the 1851 Great Exhibition, which was one of his achievements and his inspiration continues with the great museums, cultural and educational institutions of South Kensington towards which his statue faces. Take time to look at the statues and sculptures, with Europe, Asia, Africa and America at each corner of the memorial with figures representing manufacture, commerce, agriculture and engineering at a higher level, while lower down are friezes showing figures from the arts including painters, poets sculptors, musicians and architects. From this you can appreciate what a talented man Prince Albert was and how much of a loss his death meant to the country.
