We see this all the time on the TV, but it does not display the expanse of the area. Buckingham Palace is huge and the Queen Victoria Memorial in front of the palace is a beautiful statue which everyone must visit.

The monument is 82 feet tall and weighs about 2,300 tons. Most recognizable from a distance is the bright gold Winged Victory sculpture on the very top. Queen Victoria is seated on a throne, facing The Mall with her back to Buckingham Palace. Particularly interesting...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
