Whitehall, London

(4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Must see street between Trafalgar Square and parliament square. Hirsegaurds tiday and the lifeguards on duty. The scotland office, cabinet office, Downing Street, ministry of defence, cenotaph and for...  more »
  • We walked this route past many areas of great interest and historical significance. We even caught a glimpse of Downing street, pedestrian traffic was restricted. 
  • Guards on "guard", classic memorials, Downing Street (only a fleeting glimpse), Nelson at one end and the Houses of Parliament at the other, and the red phone boxes, London Buses and plenty of cabs

  • A classy pub that is usually more quiet than others, probably because it's quite hidden away. London prices but very comfortable. Great staff.
  • Went here with my partner after recommendation from Mr. Hyde and absolutely loved it. Great venue, friendly staff and good food.
  • Nice surprise for a downstreet pub, quiet, pleasant atmosphere, food- good, but no such a great variety, friendly staff and very clean bathrooms . I recommend !
  • For shame this place was a haven on Whitehall as it's set back 10 metres from the main road and seemingly immune to tourists. Sadly the refurb has left us with real ales now costing over a fiver and not much else. However, it is good for ambitious civil servants wanting to jabber nonsense at each other.
  • A great joint in the heart of touristy London that doesn't break the bank. Don't be fooled by the weird entrance, this place is well worth your currency.
