Horse Guards Whitehall

Probably the most photographed horses in history stand outside Horse Guards on Whitehall, just to the north of Downing Street.

Horse Guards, Whitehall

The entrance on Whitehall, just south of Trafalgar Square leads to Horse Guards Parade, once the HQ of the British Army and the site of the annual Trooping the Colour. The Palladian style entrance to Horse Guards is protected by mounted troopers of the Household Cavalry in full regalia of breastplate and plumed helmet.

Other attractions in London close to Whitehall by tube, bus or on foot include the Robert Clive statue, the Cabinet War Rooms, Regent's Park, the British Museum, Dr. Johnson's House, Samurai Sushi Bento, Russell Square, St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben or farther afield Buckingham Palace.

The nearest underground station to Whitehall is Westminster on the Circle, District and Jubilee lines.
