Marathon Finishers Paradise!

after running 26.2 miles around London, The Mall was a blissful sight! You have the parks either side and Buckingham Palace at one end so there is lots to see around The Mall.

The Mall runs from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace. I always take visitors out of St James'' park station and walk through the park to the palace, I then walk along the mall, reminiscing about how many times we have seen it on TV, during ceremonies and stop to look at Horse Guards' Parade on the way. At the end... More

It is used as a processional route during Royal and other State occasions, when large crowds line it. Linking Trafalgar Square and Admiralty Arch with the Queen Victoria Memorial and Buckingham Palace it is a wide avenue, not really a tourist attraction in itself other than when festooned with flags but good to see because of all the history and...

The avenue links Trafalgar square to Buckingham Palace, passing between beautiful parks. It is always kept clean. It is a very pleasant area, and anybody will enjoy visiting both Saint James and Green parks, while walking towards the Palace.

I guess every tourist where know where the mall is because one can hardly miss it if you are coming to Buckingham Palace. Having said that a lot of the roads coming up to Buckingham Palace are wide, with trees overhanging. However the Mall is special - it just seems a lot more grand. The great thing about the mall...

It's always a pretty walk-- and it is in view of the Palace. I have been to London several times, and somehow it's the Mall that feels mist like the "special London" that evokes childhood dreams of carriages and horses. While there aim to see the guard changing at 11AM ( confirm time for the day you're there).

A very nice, famous street stretching from Buckhingham Palace and next to St. James' Park. The red colour of it really makes it pop out.

The Mall is one of London's most beautiful streets lined on one side with historic buildings and a lovely park on the other

On many an occasion when visiting London at night I have walked home from the West End and gone down The Mall. Even with a lot of traffic at 11.00pm, there is an eerie silence because there are very few people. It is one of the most beautiful streets of London at night - you can spot the Houses of... More

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.
