The Victoria Memorial is a monument to Queen Victoria, located at the end of The Mall in London, and designed and executed by the sculptor (Sir) Thomas Brock. Designed in 1901, it was unveiled on 16 May 1911, though it was not completed until 1924. It was the centrepiece of an ambitious urban planning scheme, which included the creation of the Queen’s Gardens to a design by Sir Aston Webb, and the refacing of Buckingham Palace (which stands behind the memorial) by the same architect.
Like the earlier Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens, commemorating Victoria's consort, the Victoria Memorial has an elaborate scheme of iconographic sculpture. The central pylon of the memorial is of Pentelic marble, and individual statues are in Lasa marble and gilt bronze. The memorial weighs 2,300 tonnes and is 104 ft wide. In 1970 it was listed at Grade I.

Lovely place to be. Not big fan of queen Victoria but place itself is so good.. Marble statues surrounded by water.. and golden angel on top..
The monument was designed in 1901 by Sir Thomas Brock, and was inaugurated in 1911. King Edward VII wanted to pay homage for his mother. This monument is performed in marble and bronze, and is situated in front of Buckingham Palace, at the beginning of The Mall. It’s a monument weighting 2300 tones. The Winged Victory is at the top of the monument, made in bronze. The queen Victoria is placed with the face to the city. Four lions are at the corners of the memorial, and there is a fountain. It’s a very impressive monument
