The Mall runs from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace and St. James Park is on one side. Beautiful tree-lined street and is great for a leisurely walk while sight-seeing.

The Mall is the road that links Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace and crosses through St James Park. A beautiful stroll through St James Park on a pleasant day is pleasant enough in itself. Walking from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace on The Mall is something highly recommended. Walk slowly, enjoy the gardens and breathe.

The Mall runs from Trafalger Square to Buckingham Palace. It is well worth the stroll seeing Buckingham Palace loom larger as you get closer. The road is crowded on royal occasions but less so when nothing is on. Enjoy St James Park and the beautiful buildings on the opposite side of the road.

From the big gates right the way up to Buckingham palace this is a nice walk. We were here when they had cycling on so that was enjoyable.

If you're British this is a complete must. Such an integral part of our history. Even if from elsewhere still a truly wonderful stroll. Lined by wonderful buildings and the park. Ok not the shortest - but not that long either. Great when all the flags are out - and then Buckingham Palace at the end. All the more impressive... More

The Mall leads directly to the Palace and St. James Park. I can still envision the crowds gathering for such historic events as the wedding of Charles/ Diana, and Will /Kate. I recommend you get there early in the day to walk the distance without the crowds that are guaranteed to form later in the day.

This road is the road we've always taken to visit Buckingham palace. I always forget how long it is, there is a park on the left hand side which you can enter and sit down in if you need a break. There is rarely any traffic so some people walk on the road. The long walk is worth it when... More

We walked parts here and there. Just walk around the fountain and front of the palace and that gives you enough. Our feet were so tired we wouldn't have made it. Good to approach the palace from this perspective though.

The most important thoroughfare in the UK without a doubt - direct from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace flanked by park sides on both sides of the road. Lovely walk and great memories of Royal Occasions gone by

My previous experience with the Mall had been confined to television, where I had seen the iconic place bristling with pomp and circumstance and peopled with enormous crowds. How strange to finally see the Mall in person and find it so nearly empty. I suppose you might get the same sensation if you were to visit Piccadilly Circus and find... More
