Admiralty Arch


Admiralty Arch is an elegant building with arches that provide access to The Mall.

Commissioned by King Edward IIV as a memorial to his late mother Queen Victoria, Admiralty was built in 1910 and was used by Sir Winston Churchill, Lord Mountbatten and other influential figures.

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".

Tip: if you can reach it, rub the nose for good luck.more
