This is a large memorial to the brave men who served in the Crimea. Set just back from the Dume of York’s column.

This review is more of the area around the monument. So many statues and stunning buildings This must be one of the most attractive areas of London.

Near Trafalgar Square, just walk further down the Canadian Embassy and I was the only person admiring the War Memorial for The Crimean War. It was an impressive structure and tribute.

So many statues and sculptures in London that have been erected in memory of a person or an event that it's easy to miss some of them. This memorial is cast in bronze and commemorates the Allied victory in the Crimean War.

There are countless monuments around the city and this is one of the better ones to me. Located close to the park and surrounded by great architecture. As with others in the city, there is a plaque with great information.

Whilst the Guards Crimean War Memorial is impressive, made from cannon captured at Sevastopol, it is not the only statue in the area. It is well worth looking around at the other memorials in Waterloo Place, such as Robert Falcon Scott (or South Pole fame),...More

Erected only 5 years after the end of the Crimea War (1855) - which ended as hugely unpopular by the British Public, as witnessed by the Trafalgar Square "Snowball Riot" - this is a curio of taste. The soldier figures are interesting, but the political...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
