The Victoria Embankment comprises a historic riverside promenade, the Memorial Gardens, the Bandstand Enclosure and the Meadows Recreation Ground to form one of Nottingham's flagship parks. The earthworks of the Victoria Embankment were constructed between 1898 and 1901 and the space was opened in 1901.

The Memorial Gardens, built on land gifted by Boots the chemist founder Sir Jesse Boot, include a grand 46ft high memorial arch and gateway, flanked by a colonnade. The city’s coat of arms sits above the main cornice and plaques on the arches remember those from Nottingham who fell during the two World Wars. The foundation stone was laid on 1st August 1923 by HRH The Prince of Wales and the memorial was formally unveiled on 11th November 1927 by the Mayor of Nottingham, Alderman Edmund Huntsman.
