One of London's great thoroughfares, Whitehall passes numerous prominent memorials and government buildings along its journey from Trafalgar Square to Chelsea. Named after the Palace of Whitehall, the residence of British monarchs until it burned down in 1698, the street visits, among other prominent sites, the broad neo-Baroque Old War Office Building and The Cenotaph, Britain's most prominent war memorial. Looking south from the latter, you'll notice the clocktower of Big Ben and the tower of Westminster Palace looming on the skyline. Whitehall is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
