The Mall is a great place to walk and take in the views and see the famous buildings that line it on one side and the lovely park on the other side. Its great to see Buckingham Palace in the distance and the view gets better the further up the Mall you go. It is one of London's famous landmarks... More

After visiting Buck, seeing the Canada Gate and Queen Victoria Monument the Mall makes for a nice, enjoyable stroll down the wide walkway. Nice to do in the evening as the sun sets and the lights turn on.

Buckingham Palace on one side and the Horse Guards on the other. When the weather is nice it is a great way to spend the afternoon.

The Mall is where the British and many others from around the world gather during major royal events. Lined with trees and decked out with flags on special occasions it is quite a long walk end to end. Buckingham Palace sits pride of place at the far end. The atmosphere here on a historic occasion such as a Royal Wedding... More

Having trudged up and down The Mall on summer daytrips to London with mum (it is a loooong way!) I was determined not do this with my teens. But then how to see Buckingham Palace as well as all the other sights in a limited time and without getting exhausted? Following TripAdvisor's postings, we found a guided bike tour which... More

The Mall is the road that connects Buckingham Palace to Admiralty Arch (and further to Trafalgar Square) and runs alongside St James's Park. Apparently under the Mall is a network of tunnels, including one that connects Buckingham Palace to the UK Prime Minister's Office. My wife and I walked from Trafalgar Square, through Admiralty Arch and down the Mall to... More

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.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
