Arguably this is one of the most famous monuments in London. Well perhaps apart from the aptly named Monument close to London Bridge. Also perhaps apart from the Statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus. I guess I am saying that this is (probably) the 3rd most famous statue in London. It sits outside the front of Buckingham Palace and is of Queen Victoria Sitting on the Throne. I had no idea that it was nicknamed the Wedding Cake Monument before I started writing this post. It commemorates Queen Victoria and was designed by Sir Aston Webb. Work began in July 1903 and the final memorial was unveiled in 1911 by King George V.
Thank you google for that gem of knowledge.
