The mall is beautiful and historic and walking it allows you to take in the history as you walk toward the Admiralty Arch, which separates the Mall from Trafalgar Square! Wear your walking shoes!

Walk the ceremonial route used for all State Visits. Flanked by Green Park and St James's Park, this broad avenue leads from Trafalgar Square through Admiralty Arch to the Queen Victoria Memorial immediately before the gates of Buckingham Palace. Free - Tube Station: Charring Cross

As you go through admiralty atch and start looking toeards the palace you can imagine the years of the royal family in their coach going to the palace. Wide majastic road and as you get toeards the end Clarence House on the right.

Great area to walk down a tree-lined street. Very peaceful. There's not much else besides the walk, but it's a nice walk.

We visited this art gallery for the exhibition of Pele (the world famous footballer). The Gallery is quite small and intimate and has its own small restaurant. We have always found the displays here to be well presented and very interesting. The Mall itself is a lovely road linking Trafalgar Square with Buckingham Palace and runs alongside the delightful St... More

There's not much to do really, but it is a nice stroll if you are walking through it to get somewhere else like we were!

After taking in Buckingham Palace take a stroll down The Mall towards Trafalgar Square. A leafy lined straight it can be quite relaxing. There's a nice monument to the Queen and her father half way down on the left hand side.

We cruised through here after walking St James' park. The flags are just brilliant although the traffic is a fright to negotiate. Great picture opportunities!

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.
