This war memorial on Whitehall is a must visit to pay our respects and remembrance of the fallen heroes of the wars. Remembrance services have been held here for the past decades. A must visit.

Such a necessary monument - lest we forget. Located on Whitehall, take time to visit and absorb the solemness of remembering the fallen. So important that I took my children to it in order that they learn our history.

Very symbolic, emotional and great memorial dedicated to Britain's war heroes. It is very decent for what it stands for and very well kept. The Cenotaph was designed and built by Edwin Lutyens at the request of the then Prime Minister Lloyd George. Services of...More

Seen it on my screen for years on Remembrance Sunday. Finally took the time to visit and pause. We remember in November, but this reminds us to always remember. Amongst all the hustle and bustle of London it is fitting to pause and reflect on...More

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
