Where

The Mall leads under Admiralty Arch and past St James’s Park to the Victoria Monument in front of Buckingham Palace.

It is the scene of many royal ceremonies, including the Changing of the Guard.

This processional route to Buckingham Palace was created by Aston Webb in 1911 when he redesigned the façade of the place and the Victoria Monument.

The wide road follows the course of the old path at the edge of St James’s Park, laid out in the reign of Charles II. This soon became London’s most fashionable promenade in the 17th century.

On many important occasions crowds gather around the Victoria Monument and in the Mall to watch Royal Family wave from the palace balcony.

When foreign heads of state arrive on official visits to the UK, flagpoles on both sides of the Mall fly their national flags.
