A brief history of "The Mall" to go alongside my stock images
- The Mall is a traffic road (closed to traffic on sundays, public holidays & other ceremonial occasions) in the City of Westminster
in central London with Buckingham Palace at it's western most point & Trafalgar Square via Admirality Arch as it's eastern most point.
- The Mall was designed to provide a grand ceremonial route to Buckingham Palace for major national ceremonies creating a similar
ceremonial route as in other cities such as; Berlin, Paris, Vienna, Philadelphia & Washington DC.
- The grand tree-lined boulevard is flanked by the beautiful urban park, St James's Park to the south, St James's Palace, the colossal
Institute of Contemporary Arts (Carlton Terrace), The Queen Elizabeth Memorial (Queen Mother) & King George VI Memorial to the north.
- The spectacular Queen Victoria Monument & the Queen's Gardens are located at the western most point before reaching the palace &
Horse Guards Parade is found running off the eastern most edge of the Mall.
