A shining, glittering, gorgeously maintained memorial to Albert and all things colonial. So. My grown daughter and I spent a gorgeous afternoon here and in the gardens. Still. Colonialism and oppression. So.

Passed the memorial on the way to the Albert Hall named after the consort of Queen Victoria. It is a most impressive structure and a very fitting remembrance.

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
