Admiralty Arch, London: 32 reviews and 57 photos
Just a little south west of Trafalgar Square is Admiralty Arch. It was commissioned by King Edward VII to commemorate his mother, Queen Victoria. Designed in 1911 by Aston Webb, it is the magnificent gateway to Pall Mall which leads to Buckingham Palace. It was originally built as offices and living accommodation for the Sea Lords of that time as it is situated next to The Old Admiralty and is now a Grade 1 listed building and office block.
There is a Latin inscription at the top of the arch - "ANNO DECIMO EDWARDI SEPTIMI REGIS VICTORI? REGIN? CIVES GRATISSIMI MDCCCCX" which means "In the tenth year of King Edward VII, to Queen Victoria, from most grateful citizens, 1910."
