Whitehall is a street in the London district of Westminster in Great Britain . It is the main traffic artery going from Parliament Square, the government center of Great Britain , to Trafalgar Square . There are many government buildings in its environs. That is one of the reasons why the government administration is reffered to as “Whitehall”.

Glances into History

Whitehall Street was named after the Whitehall Palace, which used to stand close to this street. Unfortunatelly, it was destroyed by a great fire in 1689. Whitehall was originally a wide street going around this palace. Trafalgar Square was built at the northern end as late as the beginning of the 19th century. The present appearance of the street also dates from that period. The total length of Whitehall is 1 km.

The Situation Today

The oldest house located at Whitehall Street is Banqueting House, erected in 1622 by the architect Inigo Jones. It represents the only preserved part of the original palace. At Whitehall you can also find the most important war memorial (the memorial of fallen) situated in the middle of the street. It is the place of Remembrance Sunday celebrations. At Whitehall you will also find an equestrian statue of George, Duke of Cambridge , a former commander-in-chief. In the middle part of the street are situated military buildings, including the Ministry of Defence, the former headquarters of the British Army (Horse Guards) and the Navy (Admiralty) .
