The Admiralty Arch was built in 1912 which adjoined the Old Admiralty Building (linking to admiral history) and provides travel access between Buckingham Palace, The Mall and Trafalgar Square. King Edward VII commissioned the Arch in honour of Queen Victioria. The Grade I listed building houses government offices today.

The inscription at the top of the Arch reads: "ANNO DECIMO EDWARDI SEPTIMI REGIS VICTORIĘ REGINĘ CIVES GRATISSIMI MDCCCCX" means "In the tenth year of King Edward VII, to Queen Victoria, from most grateful citizens, 1910" (Source: Wikipedia)
