This 1 kilometer road connects Trafalgar square to Buckingham palace. Along the road, there are several buildings (including a palace) and numerous statues and monuments. There're also several entrances to St. Jame's park. While not too exciting, it's worth a 20-minute stroll.

I think it's too much to consider this boulevard as a point of attraction.There are a lot of other similar boulevards in London,straight,wide,bounded by trees.What makes it a little different is the thing that at one of it ends you find Buckingham Palace.

This should definitely be part of a trip to London. Best if you take a walking tour and really learn more about the mall and the history of the area. It’s an historic place that is also a lovely walk to Buckingham Palace.

The Mall is a wide, picturesque boulevard, positioned between St James's Park and Green Park and the gateway to Buckingham Palace from Admiralty Arch and effectively, Trafalgar Square. It is a long walk from one end to the other and whilst there are some nice...More

Leaving the National Gallery (Trafalger Square), we were swept along on the wave of humanity as it made its way down "The Mall" to "Whitehall" where it technically ended. Although probably not as grand as Amsterdam's parade, this Gay Parade was still the dominant thing...More
