The Albert Memorial and The Royal Albert Hall

14 pics.  Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, was much missed by the queen when he died.  Victoria was taken by long years of mourning and fell into a long period of personal decline.  Part of the queen’s tribute to the prince are the Albert Memorial and Royal Albert Hall.  The memorial  can be found on Google maps at the southern end of Kensington Gardens.  The Royal Albert Hall is just across the road.

    • Oh yes and surprising. I new it was there but was surprised by how extraordinary it is when I went to visit.

  2. Again the architecture is simply stunning.
    I do have one question: how many holes does it take to fill the Albert Hall?

    • I believe it’s 4,000. ❗

      However the police found a really mysterious one. They’re still looking into it. 😛

      • I thought that’s how many were in Blackburn? Perhaps it’s 42.

        • Could be but the mice would still like to know the question. Apparently it’s around here somewhere. 🙂
