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.

We visited London for a day and wanted to visit as many attractions as we could. We have been into London a couple of times but have never had time to go to the Mall or Buckingham Palace. As we were in Trafalgar Square, we decided to walk along the Mall to Buckingham Palace. I was taken aback a little... More

Walking down the mall with all flags lining the walkway made me feel extremely proud to be British! It leads to Buckingham palace which is a site to behold itself! Delightful. Busy at 11am when changing of the guard

Just a walk down The Mall gives you London in a nutshell. Starting from Trafalgar Square, you walk under Admiralty Arch - at one time part of the building running the Navy. On your left, you will see a statue of James Cook, the discoverer of Australia. Continuing along, you pass the above ground part of the Cabinet War Rooms,... More

You must walk along the Mall on your way to Buckingham Palace and the changing of the guard expecially on a warm sunny day

I had the honour to cycle down here as part of the Help for Heroes Big Battlefield Bike Ride 2014. To do so was amazing and having people line the route was brilliant. Looking back at the photos, to know I've cycled down it with Buckingham Palace in the background was great. It was also wonderful to be able to... More

The highlight of the mall for me, was the Rastafarian guy going up and down on his tricycle, pulling along his sound system made out of traffic cones with speakers in the end. Had some jungle playing. That's what I like about London, people get to express themselves, he would probably be fined where I'm from Oh, also some nice... More

The Mall is the road, just under a full kilometer in length, which links Trafalgar Square with Buckingham Palace in central London. Interestingly the road is tinted in red colour to produce the image of a large red carpet leading up to the Palace. With good eyesight and blue skies you can see end to end quite well. You can...
