Beautiful building just off Trafalgar Square, Admiralty Arch is worthy of a quick stop and pictures from both sides. Built in 1910. The inscription reads "Anno decimo Edwardi Septimi Regis Victoriæ Reginæ cives gratissimi MDCCCCX" which translates to "In the tenth year of King Edward VII to Queen Victoria from most grateful citizens 1910".
