I found this Arch when I was on my way to Trafalgar Square for the second time and took a different path. This building/arch is gorgeous, just wish I knew more about it. It is a popular photo stop.

Just amazing to experience London again and walk though these arches into Years of history . The Mall was beautifully kept and the weather was superb! Most exciting part was viewing the Canada Gate and walking through the park to land in Pucally Circus!

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier

Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
