It's just a road. But pass by here on any special occasion and its like a sea of people leading to Buckingham Palace. Grab a boris bike and it's even more fun

I always take the time for a walk along the Mall whenever I visit London. Buckingham Palace on one end and Admiralty Arch on the other. So many London Landmarks nearby including Horse guards parade. Trafalgar Square and Downing street. The road is closed off to traffic with the exception of V.I.P's and I think Black cabs. The Mall is... More

We rented cycles and rode down here which was a great experience all the way to the palace! It all feels rather grand a long straight road from the arches - well worth a stroll or cycle - A must do!

The Mall, this long way leading up to the gates of Buckingham Palace. A long straight pedestrian road, for cab only. Good for pictures and reference point, pleasant walk from here through the St James Park for a run, cycling or just for an outdoor promenade before getting at the Queen's palace. Beautiful place indeed.

The mall is a very wide street connects Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square runs parallel to St. Jame's Park. It is always kept very clean, and very well looked after because it is used by many visiting heads of states to London, and of course by the Royal family. It is well worth a visit.

I've only ever seen the Mall on the TV, what an experience it is to actually walk down it to Buckingham Palace, so historical, and a good walk.

We walked down the mall after we did our sight-see in front of Buckingham Palace. It is extremely busy, it actually reminded me of the Champs-Elysées in Paris, but The Mall was actually much nicer as it borders a bit of Green Park and much of St James's Park. Just don't try to cross from on side to the other,... More

We had been to see the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Once it was over, we went to visit the Royal Mews, which are located just around the corner. After an interesting tour of the Mews, we decided to take a stroll along the Mall, in the direction of Admiralty Arch. As we walked along the Mall... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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.
