I definitely recommend anyone visiting London who is interested in architecture, politics and the United Kingdom Government to take a walk through Whitehall. It is flanked with buildings of architectural, political and historic interest associated with Government including the Cabinet Office and the Ministry of...More

Yes, Whitehall is the seat of Government, but walking down you could miss it apart from the Cenotaph and the big heavy gates into Downing Street. But the wide roads give a sense of grandeur.

Most important street in the country because of what it houses. Great buildings line it length. Shame you no longer can go down Downing street.

This is where all the key decisions of Government are made and they’ve an impressive neighbourhood to do them in. Many of the buildings are full of random Departments but there are some interesting buildings to look at.

Whitehall is the grand space that links the two squares: Parliament & Trafalgar. From Parliament Square walking down on the right are the office buildings for Health, roads lead off here onto Embankment. There are a couple of nice boozers along this stretch and souvenir...More

This is a rather unattractive governmental street, which features several monuments and buildings, including the now fortified entrance to Downing 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
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
