Beautiful tree lined avenue.

Fairly decent tree lined avenue filled with the typical London taxi. It ends in the Victoria Square right in front of Buckingham Palace.

I do like walking up the Mall but it's one of those ceremonial roads which, for me, needs to be seen in times of celebration, pomp, and circumstance. When empty of marching soldiers and music it feels a bit cavernous and empty, and I never find I can see very much from the pavement (and standing in the middle of... More

Walking and touring the sights on 'The Mall' while on a recent vacation to London was... in short... and amazing experience. A central viewpoint to so many wonderful and iconic London sights, walking on paths and next to the road and parks that were the scene of so many historic, royal, movie and television events was in short not to...

Treelined with parks and the famous view leading up to Buckingham Palace makes this a worthwhile visit. A lot of the older buildings that make London's look known are lined or a short walk from the Mall

A wide tree lined boulevard that links Trafalgar Square with Buckingham Palace. It is bound by St James Park on one side and small palaces (in comparison to Buckingham Palace) on the other and gives a suitably grand approach to Buckingham Palace. The road surface is red which stands out and the black cabs driving past give a real sense... More

The Mall connects the Buckingham Palace with Trafalgar Square and is famous for its flags, but I haven't seen any of them during my visit.

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...

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.
