A nice memorial to all the women who went through the Second World War, helping out doing men's jobs, working the land, working in munitions factories etc. Set in Whitehall close to the cenotaph.

Situated in the middle of the road in Whitehall, we passed this relatively recent (2005) memorial to the women of World War II on our walk from Westminster to Trafalgar Square. Unveiled by Queen Elizabeth as part of the 60th anniversary of the end of...More

Women played an important part in both World Wars but their role in the war effort is often overlooked. It’s good to see that this memorial is in such a central location that it starts to remedy that.

A lot of historical significance and great to see a shout out to the women of the war. The memorial showcases the jobs women performed while the men were fighting. It is large and hard to miss while on the Main Street.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
