Curious About Trafalgar Square gives an exciting perspective into this historic area of London.
Walk 1: St James's Square to Trafalgar Square
From the elegance of a famous London Square, home now to many powerful companies, you pass along Jermyn Street – a street for gentlemen looking for exclusive shirts, shoes, cigars and haircuts. Walk down a typical arcade with quirky shops and busy people. Along Pall Mall with its gentlemen's clubs, before opening out onto Trafalgar Square, the centre of London, bustling with tourists immersed in history (1.5 miles).
Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace
From the excited tourists at the foot of Nelson's Column you pass under Admiralty Arch and into the peaceful haven of The Mall. Horse Guards Parade initially to the left, followed by St James's Park, and elegant but imposing buildings to the right. Divert next along streets from bygone times, before returning to the Mall with Green Park to the right, and the regal splendour and attraction of Buckingham Palace, straight ahead (1.25 miles).
