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

On a normal business day traveling the Mall by car it is just another wide road, however it a nice one. I walked it a few times which allows to look at it in mor detail. Apparently I never seen it at a special event, like a parade. Maybe such impression is missing for a top rating

There are security with horses. Road is red. Sometimes some military shows happen here. If weather is ok it is a must go place.

Starting from Trafalgar Square and passing through Admiralty Arch, this wide tree lined avenue is an impressive approach to Buckingham Palace. If you can visit when it's decked out with flags for a ceremonial occasion, it's very impressive, but even without it's still a nice walk. On Sunday's it's closed to traffic during the day.

On a day when nothing is happening this is just another wide road i cant get excited about it im afraid leading to buckingham palace the walk through the park rather than down the road is more relaxing

It is lovely to walk the Mall......especially starting at the top and walking down to Buckingham Palace. The historic buildings you pass along the way: including home of the late Queen Mother, home of the late Princess Diana, home of Princess Maegaret, conjures up lovely memories of those great ladies. The Mall just looks so clean, it is easy to... 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.
