Admiralty Arch

Carrying on from yesterdays post of our travels in London. We headed down The Mall towards Admiralty Arch.
En route we went past a few statues.

This one is the Duke of York's Column from the childrens nursery rhyme -

Oh, the grand Old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
Then he marched them down again
And when they were up they were up
Ande when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up
They were neither up nor down!

Admiralty Arch! Apparently the gate in the middle is only opened for State occasions.

Another photograph showing Admiralty Arch.

Captain Cook - who discovered Australia and New Zealand.

An even closer look at the Arch!

A war memorial near to the Arch.

And close by we found this sculpture of two fighting hares. Our daughter referred to them as the Kung Fu rabbits!

Ker - pow!

And finally, here we have our very own Kung Fu rabbit!

Until next time.

  1. Ooo I love those hares! Days out in London are such good fun (if you steer away from the shops!). Such a good place to walk about in, I love just strolling through the parks. Good to see your squirrel photos too, just been watching the squirrels in our garden - they are truly bonkers!


Please do leave a comment. I love to hear from you!
