This memorial is a good place to remember the atrocities of world wars. It is not the most decorative of memorials in the world though.

The memorial was inaugurated in 2002 commemorating the soldiers of the British Empire coming from five regions of the Indian sub-continent, Africa and Caribbean. This is a simple but important monument for almost five million volunteers who served in both World Wars.

These Memorial gates are located near Hyde park, they stand out as they are very modern looking and the queen inaugurated them in 2002. They commemorate the soldiers of the Commonwealth who died fighting for our country.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a

Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
