This memorial outside Buckingham Palace is probably as well known as the palace itself. With the gold angel on top and the bright white column, it very much catches the eye and the statue of the great queen herself is looking over the palace with...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
