The Mall has been a major thoroughfare through London since the 17th century. But the elegant sweeping street that is today's Mall dates from 1914 when it was built as a memorial to Queen Victoria.
It runs for more than half a mile from Buckingham Palace, along the edge of St James's Park to Trafalgar Square. Popular tourist sights that can be found along the Mall include the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Victoria Memorial.
Like nearby Pall Mall, the name is derived from the popular 17th century Italian game 'pallo a maglio', which translates as 'ball and mallet'.
