The Victoria Memorial in London stands at the midpoint of Queen's Gardens directly in front of Buckingham Palace. It is a golden statue of Queen Victoria which was erected in 1911, ten years after her death. The statue was sculpted by Sir Thomas Brock and the base of the memorial was made by Sir Aston Webb. The queen's statue faces towards the Mall and at her base are bronze statues representing the Angels of Justice, Truth and Charity. At the top of the monument is a representation of Victory flanked by two seated figures which were a gift from the population of New Zealand. There are nautical designs associated with the statue including a hippogriff and a selection of mermen and mermaids which together represent the strength of the British Navy during Victoria's rain. There is no entrance fee to see the Memorial since it stands in a public space and can be seen at all time.
