Is The Mall closed to traffic on Sundays?

Wikipedia tells me "[The Mall] is closed to traffic on Sundays and public holidays, and on ceremonial occasions."

Is it?

I can't recall ever being in the area on weekends and it might be nice to wander down if there was no traffic on a Sunday.

Thanks, Mez,

Constitution hill and Marlborough gate are normally closed on Sunday's but unless there is some kind of event, the mall is usually open.

Are you sure about that? It always used to be. I have an A-Z (from 2009) that says it is closed, and Wikipedia confirms that is still the case.

When we were there in April 2012, it was closed on Sunday (made for a really nice walk and some great pictures.)

Admiralty arch is defiantly open onto the mall, if it's closed beyond horse parade, you can use birdcage walk.

The Mall between Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square is closed to automobiles and motorbikes, but open for cyclists, skaters and pedestrians.

By the way, if you are still interested in statues do you know about the new ones around the financial district, near the Gherkin? They're going to be there up to mid-2014. It's part of an architecture festival, I think.

Thank you, all. Will try and wander down there and check it out.

Eclectic_Angel, if you mean Sculpture in the CIty, it's already on the list. :-)

And totally unrelated - Nadal is out! Great match but a shock exit for sure. And since Errani also lost, it's clearly bad luck to be the 5th seed this year.

When are you planning your "wander" there are lots of Sundays coming up when even that may not be possible.
