The centrepiece of the roundabout in front of Buckingham Palace, is the magnificent Queen Victoria Memorial.
 
This memorial was conceived in 1901 and unveiled by King George V in 1911. It was erected as part of a makeover of The.Mall.

The memorial consists of an 82ft (25 metre) high white marble structure topped by a golden statue of Victory. A 13ft (4 metre) high seated figure of Queen Victoria faces down The Mall towards Admiralty Arch. She is flanked by figures representing Charity, Truth and Justice as well as other figures representing the Arts and Virtues.
 
The Memorial stands in a circular pool of water approached by two flights of steps. A great place to sit and admire the vista of The Mall, the Royal parks and of course Buckingham Palace.
