The Albert is a beautiful Victorian pub in London. Originally know as ‘The Blue Coat Boy’, it was built between 1845 and 1852 and later renamed ‘The Albert’ in honour of Queen Victoria’s husband. (Or according to other sources it was built between 1862 and 1864 to replace the Blue Coat Boy). Far from being intimidated by the modern skyscrapers that surround it, The Albert stands proud against its street neighbours in its original splendour.
