Apparently, they really like this guy Prince Albert. I understand that his wife was pretty successful, too.
Royal Albert Hall
The Albert Memorial (not quite understated, is it?)
And, having nothing to do with Albert, I'll throw in an Underground shot. This is the Notting Hill Gate station. I wish the NYC subway stations looked more like this. Not that the London stations are spotless or modern, but this just has more class than any of ours...
