- 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.
