The "Grand View" of the Central Methodist Church

Big Ben, on the side of the Parliament building on the banks of the River Thames

An example of the modern architecture which is sprinkled right among the great monuments of London.  On the whole, this makes the city much more jumbled than the streets of Paris, where neighboroods tend to all have a similar style.

Prince Albert Memorial & The Royal Albert Hall

Memorial to Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria (reign 1835-1901).  Albert was a German from the Hannover house, and was thus a cousin of Queen Victoria.  He died young at age 43, and the Queen dedicated much of her life to his memory.
