A nice memorial with large statues and fountains, right between the palace and St. James park. Can't be missed by anyone walking through the area, but probably not worth making a detour for, in comparison to most of other London's landmarks.

Definitely a beautiful and impressive statue. In the roundabout just outside Buckingham Palace, can't be missed but certainly overlooked. It is however a masterpiece that deserves some contemplating and we'll deserved attention.

In the centre of the roundabout right outside Buckingham Palace is this iconic statue which is often overlooked. Don't, have a closer look and see how beautiful it is!

It's nice to get close to something that you often see only on television and it's always such a noticeable place in anything to do with the Royals or Buckingham Palace. Great view back down The Mall.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
