A lovely park for a walk

Buckingham Palace on one side and the Horse Guards on the other. When the weather is nice it is a great way to spend the afternoon.

The Mall is where the British and many others from around the world gather during major royal events. Lined with trees and decked out with flags on special occasions it is quite a long walk end to end. Buckingham Palace sits pride of place at the far end. The atmosphere here on a historic occasion such as a Royal Wedding... More

Having trudged up and down The Mall on summer daytrips to London with mum (it is a loooong way!) I was determined not do this with my teens. But then how to see Buckingham Palace as well as all the other sights in a limited time and without getting exhausted? Following TripAdvisor's postings, we found a guided bike tour which... More

The Mall is the road that connects Buckingham Palace to Admiralty Arch (and further to Trafalgar Square) and runs alongside St James's Park. Apparently under the Mall is a network of tunnels, including one that connects Buckingham Palace to the UK Prime Minister's Office. My wife and I walked from Trafalgar Square, through Admiralty Arch and down the Mall to... More

The Mall runs from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace and St. James Park is on one side. Beautiful tree-lined street and is great for a leisurely walk while sight-seeing.

The Mall is the road that links Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace and crosses through St James Park. A beautiful stroll through St James Park on a pleasant day is pleasant enough in itself. Walking from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace on The Mall is something highly recommended. Walk slowly, enjoy the gardens and breathe.

The Mall runs from Trafalger Square to Buckingham Palace. It is well worth the stroll seeing Buckingham Palace loom larger as you get closer. The road is crowded on royal occasions but less so when nothing is on. Enjoy St James Park and the beautiful buildings on the opposite side of the road.

From the big gates right the way up to Buckingham palace this is a nice walk. We were here when they had cycling on so that was enjoyable.

If you're British this is a complete must. Such an integral part of our history. Even if from elsewhere still a truly wonderful stroll. Lined by wonderful buildings and the park. Ok not the shortest - but not that long either. Great when all the flags are out - and then Buckingham Palace at the end. All the more impressive... 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.
