Whitehall

Categories: Architecture

Major road in London, running from Parliament Square to Trafalgar Square. The name is derived from the Whitehall Palace which stood here and was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1698. The Banqueting House is all that remains of the Palace. Most of the government department buildings are located here.
