For me there is nothing better, when opportunity permits, than to travel through Westminster and slowly take in and indeed examine each of the iconic edifices for which the city is known and about which it can be so proud. This is a perfect example...More

If you watch royal events, have seen the queens care driving through on the way to the palace - this is a piece of architecture that lives up to what you imagine! Leading into the beautiful mall down to the palace, this is one of...More

Though not necessarily impressive in its own right, this arch acts as a true portal as one moves from busy Trafalgar Square to the more peaceful Mall. Perhaps the best way to leave the Square.

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
