Albert Memorial Undercroft

Albert Memorial Undercroft

Undercroft Arches

Following the success of last year’s visit to the Undercroft another visit was organised on 5th April 2016, with the kind permission of Andrew Williams, Manager, Kensington Gardens.

Friends were given the opportunity to explore a structure that most visitors to the Royal Albert Memorial don’t even know exists – that which lays beneath the Royal Albert Memorial.

Underneath the Albert Memorial

Wearing hard hats the Friends explored the large brick undercroft, walking through a number of the 800 plus arches that make up the framework that supports the Memorial.

A thoroughly enjoyable tour was had by all who attended. Friends who went on the tour will certainly view the Albert Memorial in a new light!
