This memorial is huge. You could feel the love that Queen Victoria must have had for her prince. It is very elaborate in detail. Well worth the walk to see this. It has to be on your list of things to do whilst in London.

This is an amazing monument. It's stunning, it's beautiful, it's impressive. Not much to do other than walk around it but it's worth the couple of minutes that takes, especially if you are already walking in the park nearby.

So impressive, massive, beautiful, intricate designs. Worth a visit to see how amazing it is! Pictures do not do it justice.

We'd been past it already but it got more impressive the closer to it I got, and the more I looked at the detail. Remarkable sculptures, gilding, representations of well regarded people of the time in various fields of endeavour, artistic representations of the reaches...More

Despite having passed this edifice numerous times I’d never stopped to look at it properly. It’s certainly ornate, impressive and a tribute to a monarch who reigned over an empire but died too young.

A few minutes at the memorial on a tour of Kensington Gardens is well worthwhile. The gold was brilliant in the sunshine on our visit.

Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
