  • Situated along the lake shore it is a beautiful tribute to an amazing singer. Definitely worth the walk from the station to see it  more »
  • We managed due to current times to take uninterrupted photos as the area was not too busy. Floral tributes were present as apparently it was his birthday.  more »

  • Beautiful place next to the lake. On sunny day provides peaceful and beautiful scenery. Great for walking along the lake side.
  • This place is amazing especially if you are a big fan of Freddie or Queen in general. There are many things that I didn't know about and never seen before. I totally recommend it even if you're not interested in this group, but want to see amazing instruments. Totally worth my time ❤️
