The Mall

The Mall is a road located near the centre of London in the City of Westminster.

It leads to the Buckingham Palac, running from Admiralty Arch on Trafalgar Square to Victoria Memorial standing in front of the palace. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century as a special road used for ceremonial occasions. Near the road there is St. James Park.

The most distinctive feature of the road is its red tarmac, which resembles the red carpet used on ceremonial and formal occasions of high rank. Although the Mall has been opened to vehicular traffic since 1887, it is closed to traffic on Sundays, public holidays, and on various ceremonial occasions. During such ceremonies it is often decorated with flags of the United Kingom and other countries taking part in the celebrations.
