The Mall

The wide expanse of The Mall is more than just another road in the middle of London. Starting from Trafalgar Square and leading up to Buckingham Palace, it has become a place for pomp and ceremony seen by billions of people the world over thanks to the hundreds of parades that have taken place over the years.

It was designed for use as a ceremonial route once built in the early 19th century, with the aim of copying those seen in places like Berlin, Mexico and Paris, amongst others. Red concrete was used to give the effect of a royal red carpet being laid out all the way up to Buckingham Palace, a simple touch that has given it an iconic style all of its own.
