Mall has been granted more importance due to the residence of British Monarch, Buckingham Palace. Since the inauguration of the palace the route which is running from the royal residence and ends at the Trafalgar Square, was placed among the most secure and significant roads. Apart from the majestic events, other reason which has made this road more famous, is the London marathon. The memorial of Queen Victoria is also present close to the road, besides that there is a St James’s Palace on the north side and a park by the name of St James’s Park, in the southern side of the Mall. During the wedding ceremony of Princess Diana with Prince Charles and Prince William’s with Catherine Middleton, Mall was made the focal point.
Mall itself is a famous landmark of London, but there are few sites which makes the road more significant.
