We stumbled onto this monument while trying to walk through the park to the Royal Albert Hall. So hard to miss! Almost ostentatious - but still very beautiful. Strangely, no one was really looking at it - everyone in a hurry walking by, so it...More

This monument in Kensington Garden is rally hard to miss and is a great way to show love for Queen Victoria’s true love. The golden statue atop a high platform is very eye catching. Well worth some time.

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
