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...

Then you can walk back through st james's park to see horse guards and the big ben. Just make sure you visit the toilet before you leave... More

You need to walk down here, gorgeous part of London and there is always something going on here. If you are not here long, this is one of the places you should go.

This is my favorite place in London. It's the road that connects Trafalgar Square with Buckingham Palace. You can start on both ends and walk towards the other end. If you are in London just for a few hour I suggest this is the place you should visit.

Just think about the Royal Wedding and other events. This was the road full of people all going to see the royals at the balcony. I have been to see the wedding and every time we walk near the Buckingham Palace we remember that wonderful day. This is a must see when in London, but start from the archy, is... More
