The AlbertOpen every day of the week, the Albert is a traditional British pub that has only changed slightly since built in 1864. The classic Victoria pub features etched and glass cut windows, allowing for the daylight to flood in, and a heavy, highly polished mahogany bar counter. Located within minutes of Westminster Abbey and Parliament Square, the pub's walls are adorned with portraits of British Prime Ministers, from Salisbury to an autographed one of Tony Blair, while Margaret Thatcher unveiled her own. With members of the parliament frequently dining here, a division bell has been installed for their convenience.
