Albert Memorial

Updated 02/27/2014

Fodor's Review

This gleaming, neo-Gothic shrine to Prince Albert created by Sir Gilbert Scott epitomizes the Victorian era. After Albert's early death from typhoid in 1861, his grieving widow, Queen Victoria, had this elaborate confection erected to the west of where the Great Exhibition had been held a decade before. A 14-foot bronze gilt statue of the prince rests on a 15-foot-high pedestal, along with other statues representing his passions and interests.
