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

The mall is my favourite walk in london, my children dont always like it because every time we are in london I have to go there, they are a little bored with it.I dont mind which way we go, down to buckinham place or up to Trafalgar square I just love it.

Awww walking down this fabulous mall made me a bit sad. Here is the path history is made yet I have yet not managed to witness one single royal celebration. Guess that's bad holiday timing. As I walked down the mall I teared for Diane, smiled for prince William and thought of all the millions of people that had gathered... More

The mall is like walking on the mall in Washington DC. Everywhere you walk there is something to see. We walked from Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square and all along the way there are parks to sit in, people to watch, monuments to see or just enjoy a long walk on a nice sunny day. This area is so walkable... More

Walking along the mall is great, you can take the opportunity to rest in the shade along the way. Nice wide paths.

After visiting Trafalgar Square we walked down the Mall towards Buckingham Palace. After seeing it so many times in footage of royal processions it was lovely to walk down, with St James Park on one side.

This was probably one of my favorite parts of our London visit. Such a lovely walk and so many things to see along the way. I would highly recommend it.
