Admiralty Arch The Mall

Admiralty Arch (see below) lies at the eastern end of The Mall; Buckingham Palace is at the opposite end. The Mall was constructed between 1829 and 1841 to commemorate Lord Nelson’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Admiralty Arch may look like a monument, but it is actually an office building. Admiralty Arch was commissioned by King Edward VII to commemorate the death of Queen Victoria.

Currently, The Mall acts as a processional route from Buckingham Palace to the Houses of Parliament. On state occasions, the Queen rides along The Mall in her carriage past the waving crowds.
