This is a rather unattractive governmental street, which features several monuments and buildings, including the now fortified entrance to Downing street.

A walk along Whitehall is a time for reflection on the History of a nation. The statues and iconic buildings reflect significant events for the nation. The horse guards add something special to occasion.
