Whitehall is where the power is in London. This is where the Government ministries are and of course the Prime Minister’s residence and office in Downing Street off to one side. But Whitehall is also where the UK remembers its war dead at the Cenotaph and the new monument to the Women of World War II. But walk on around the back of Horse Guards Parade and find something truly quirky – the St James’s Park duck keeper’s cottage ! This walk works well with my guides to the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey. This guide runs to 23 minutes.
