The Queen Victoria Memorial stands directly across The Mall from Buckingham Palace. The spire recently underwent refurbishment and now once again stands guard over Buck House. It is a great place to just sit and people watch, and it is a prime location to see the changing of the guard at the palace.

The Queen Victoria Monument sits directly across from Buckingham Palace. It had recently undergone refurbishment and proudly stands in the square surrounded by a reflecting pool. It is a great vantage point to watch the changing of the guard or other ceremonial pagentry. We observed articles of trash floating in the pool area, obviously placed by individuals lacking any form of common courtesy and respect for such an historic landmark structure.
