Other Information

  • Edward Beckitt Lamb and John Pollard Seddon's original plans called for a 168m tall eddifice to commemorate Queen Victoria's dead Consort, Prince Albert as well as other icons of the British Empire.
  • The building was designed to be the tallest in the world, and the maximum possible height stone can be built at without collapsing under its own weight.
  • Plans also included remodelling Westminster Abbey by adding a third tower to make it fit in with the rest of Westminster and St Magarets Church. Work on this was carried out.
  • The overall concept was to turn Westminster into a grand Victorian Acropolis style complex to testify at the greatness of the British Empire.
