I found this Arch when I was on my way to Trafalgar Square for the second time and took a different path. This building/arch is gorgeous, just wish I knew more about it. It is a popular photo stop.

Just amazing to experience London again and walk though these arches into Years of history . The Mall was beautifully kept and the weather was superb! Most exciting part was viewing the Canada Gate and walking through the park to land in Pucally Circus!

The high arches of the Admiralty Arch are truly impressive. It serves as a true gateway between the busy and bustling of Trafalgar Square and the tree lined lanes toward Buckingham Palace. Truly impressive.

This is a lovely arch, located at the end of the Mall, leading to Buckingham Palace. The arch is beautifully preserves and despite it being located on a busy street, it somehow oozes tranquility.

London is a wonderful city! Everywhere we went was interesting. Walk about your first day in the city and you'll see so much. I can't wait to go back. Christmas time was magical with all the different lights in every neighborhood.

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
