Albert Memorial

Landmark, Sculpture
Kensington Gardens
London, Greater London W2 2UH


  • This monument to the beloved husband of Queen Victoria celebrates Albert as a patron of the arts, science and industry. Its enormous cost (about 10m today) was met by public donations.
  • It was designed shortly after Alberts death by George Gilbert Scott (who was later knighted) and completed in 1872, although the central statue of Prince Albert was not placed upon it until 1876
  • Don't look him in they eye!
  • Perfect place to rest by the trees after two hours biking.
