One of London's great thoroughfares, Whitehall passes numerous prominent memorials and government buildings along its journey from Trafalgar Square to Chelsea. Named after the Palace of Whitehall, the residence of British monarchs until it burned down in 1698, the street visits, among other prominent sites, the broad neo-Baroque Old War Office Building and The Cenotaph, Britain's most prominent war memorial. Looking south from the latter, you'll notice the clocktower of Big Ben and the tower of Westminster Palace looming on the skyline. Put Whitehall and other London attractions into our London vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • White Hall is located in the heart of the historic centre of London. The road from Parliament Square to Trafalgar Square. Many architecturally interesting buildings and a number of statues and monuments are located on more than one kilometre. We are started from Trafalgar Square and Downing Street made a brief detour. There was to much and we have enjoyed the time.

  • Lovely gardens just a short walk from Downing Street, Trafalgar Square just outside the Embankment tube station; these gardens are alongside the River Thames and opposite the London Eye and South Bank...  read more »
  • The Whitehall Avenue is a picturesque street in the area of Westminster between two beautiful squares and musts in the city. Part from Parliament sq. and ends at Trafalgar Sq, passing through large palaces, monuments and popular attractions such as the building of the British Royal Cavalry (with its characteristic mounted guards that invite to the typical photo).

  • A surprisingly okay pub for the location, so if you're unavoidably in the area it's better than nothing. Standard drinks at only slightly higher than standard prices. Good, old-school pub feel.
  • We came here for fish and chips and hard cider while visiting London. The atmosphere in the restaurant was cute, and fairly quiet where we were sitting. We're American, so not exactly authorities on what constitutes really good British fish and chips -- but I was definitely impressed. The batter was crispy and delightful, and it stayed crispy even after I doused it in vinegar. The tartar sauce was excellent. The chips were fair, but honestly chips are never something I get super excited about anyway, so I didn't mind that. The waitress was very kind and helpful.
  • A nice bar/pub with plenty of British charm, making it ideal for tourists and local civil servants alike. As you'd expect, the prices aren't low, but the character names up for this. Good selection of spirits and wine, some lovely quiet spots to sit and enjoy a private catch up (or political gossiping)
  • We looooved this Pub. My boyfriend and I come here whenever we're in London. It's never to busy, it's not drenched in football fans and suits. It's just a really relaxed atmosphere that we enjoy after a long day browsing the city. Downstairs they serve the typical pub food that I love so much at a good price and after eating you go upstairs and enjoy the great british lagers and brews. If you are looking for THE british pub experience: Walkers of Whitehall is the place to be. Thumbs up, guys. You never fail to give us a warm welcome to one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
  • Very nice. Also very friendly personnel and suitable with Kids. Cheap prices, big portions. Fisch & chips for less than 6£. 👌 amazing taste! W-LAN available.
