Admiralty Arch is a large office building in London which incorporates an archway providing road and pedestrian access between The Mall, which extends to the southwest, and Trafalgar Square to the northeast.
The gate through which you walk ? Admiralty Arch ? may look like a monument, but it is actually an office block with rooms inside.
The inscription along the top reads ANNO DECIMO EDWARDI SEPTIMI REGIS VICTORIĘ REGINĘ CIVES GRATISSIMI MDCCCCX, which is Latin for In the tenth year of King Edward VII, to Queen Victoria, from most grateful citizens, 1910.
