One of the signature structures of London, Victoria Tower as seen from Whitehall Street. The Victoria Tower is one of three towers that stands over Westminster Palace, the home of Parliament. The main entrance at the base of the tower is the Sovereign's Entrance, through which the Monarch passes at the State Opening of Parliament. On top of the Victoria Tower is an iron flagstaff from which flies the Union Flag or, when the Sovereign is present in the Palace, the Royal Standard. The sculpture in the foreground is George, Duke of Cambridge, a grandson of Edward III.
