We are history buffs, so walking down the mall and imagining all of the pomp and ceremony that has taken place here is fun. You end up at Buckingham palace , as well walking by St James Park and monuments to Queen Elizabeth's parents.

This road runs from Buckingham Palace to Whitehall, near Trafalgar Square. It is closed to traffic on Sundays and public holidays and on ceremonial occasions.

For some this is the iconic road leading from the Arch (traditional Admiralty HQ) to Buckinhgam Palace. Evocative fo post-war generations but now just picture post card of a red road with the occaisional horse guards excercising

A nice big wide street before Buckingham Palace. Enjoyable to walk along/ stroll along and take in the views of the palace as you approach. I like how wide it is so it doesn't feel so busy or crowded.

The Mall -- the street leading to the front door of Buckingham Palace. A nice big wide tree lined street worth a walk.

The Mall runs from Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace and is London's show-piece avenue for royal and state events. With most traffic excluded it makes for a pleasant stroll.

It's THE road to the palace. Straight, tree lined, flag lined with Buckingham Palace at the end after going through Admiralty Arch. I'd love to be here for a big Royal occasion, such an iconic street. Kids enjoyed running up here to the palace.
