ADMIRALITY ARCH

At the south-western part of Trafalgar Square, on the way to Buckingham Palace, lies Admiralty Arch. This impressive structure with three archways was named after the nearby headquarters of the Royal Navy. It was designed by Aston Webb, and constructed in the honour of Queen Victoria; as indicated by the Latin inscription on the facade. The smaller side archways are open to the pedestrian traffic, while the gate in the central archway is open only for the ceremonial passage of the Royal coach during the special state events.
