Whitehall

Trafalgar Square, looking exceptionally beautiful.

Whitehall runs from Trafalgar Square to the Houses Of Parliament. (which is where Big Ben is)
It's about 800 metres long.
It contains Downing Street and Horse Guards Parade; the Welsh Office, the Scottish Office and the Tax office.
But if you get past The Government, some of the buildings are actually quite beautiful.

We're going to take a walk down Whitehall, towards the Houses of Parliament.

This is Trafalgar Square; one of the exits is Admiralty Arch. This is she.
Admiralty Arch leads to The Mall, which leads straight to Buckingham Palace.

This is Downing Street. As you can see, it's quite protected, and public access is not allowed. You can view through the bars.

Through the bars, and past the loaded machine guns, 10 Downing Street is on the right. 12 is just after it. Not sure which is the biggest burk. Either way, both houses are visible from Horse Guards Parade.

And looking up, we can see Nelsons Column in Trafalgar Square.

And looking down, we can see (on the left) Houses of Parliament. Like I said, its a long road ....
