Its worth walking off the path and climbing up the steps to take a closer look at what is one of the most impressive monuments in London. Completed in 1875 there's a wealth of detail only visible on closer inspection including 169 carved figures and groups representing the sciences, continents and industry. The four pillars each weigh 17 tons each alone.
