Landmark Tourist Spot
One of London's great thoroughfares, Whitehall Gardens 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 Gardens and other London attractions into our London vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Great place to escape busy London and sit and watch the world go by, withing walking distance from Trafalgar Square and Embankment Station.
  • Take cup of coffee, and enjoy your stay. Or just go for open air ping pong match!
  • Nice gardens and also has a ping-pong table for a quick lunch break game
  • Small and well cared the gardens. A lovely place to sit and relax for a few moments. Close to several tube stops, the Thames, Big Ben etc but away from the hustle and bustle. No facilities. Just gardens and benches.
  • Public gardens. Great location.
