Whitehall Garden is a pretty little garden alongside the Royal Horseguards Hotel where you can stroll past monuments and nicely tended flower beds.

Whitehall is the street that runs between Charing Cross and the houses of Parliament. Worth walking to further explore the range of historic UK government offices.

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.

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
