The Duke of York monument is a nice pinacle. Set in a good area to stop and rest and get a little shade too.

Too tall to see the statue and snag your attention to the story of the Duke of York--other than a very tall column. You can see other statues from here, though, like the Crimean War memorial in one direction and the statues of George VI...More

The column is 42 meters high and the stature of the Duke of York weighs 7.6 tons and impressive adjacent to the Mall and St James Park. The Duke ( Prince Frederick) was the second son of George III and some say they stuck his...More

This column is huge, with a statue of the duke himself on the top. Set back from the mall at the top of several steps and close to st James park.

This is something I’ve passed many times walking down The Mall and I’ve never felt the need to stop and take a closer look really. It’s impressive in how it looks out over The Mall but nothing more really.

The Duke of York Column is definitely a remarkable monument and it is located in a beautiful place not far from the riverbank.

This is anything but a unique column. It can be seen from the Mall and can be accessed by quite a few stairs. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it.

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
