El Arco del Almirantazgo es un gran edificio de oficinas situado en Londres, incorpora una arcada que proporciona acceso a un camino y un paso peatonal entre El Mall, que se extiende al suroeste y Trafalgar Square al noreste. Fue diseñado en 1910 por Sir Aston Webb, construido por John Mowlem & Co. y terminado en 1912. Se encuentra adyacente al Viejo Edificio del Almirantazgo, de ahí su nombre.

El edificio fue comisionado por el rey Eduardo VII en memoria de su madre la Reina Victoria, aunque no viviría para verlo terminado. En una inscripción en latín situada en lo alto se lee:

(En el décimo año del Rey Eduardo VII, a la Reina Victoria, de los ciudadanos más agradecidos, 1910)

Las figuras de La Navegación y La Artillería fueron diseñadas por el escultor inglés Thomas Brock y en su exterior se ubica también una estatua del Capitán James Cook.

Otro de sus rasgos destacados es su «nariz», sobre la pared interior del arco más septentrional hay una pequeña saliente del tamaño y la forma de una nariz humana. Hay poca o ninguna información pública en cuanto a por qué está allí. La nariz está a una altura de aproximadamente 2.1 metros. Las leyendas sostienen que la nariz está allí en honor de Eduardo VII, otros dicen que por la nariz de Napoleón.

El Arco de Almirantazgo pertenece al Grado I del catálogo de edificios del Reino Unido. En el año 2000, la Oficina del Gabinete mudó sus oficinas al edificio, manteniendo su oficina central en Whitehall. También aloja a la Unidad de Estrategia del Primer Ministro y el Destacamento de Fuerzas de Exclusión Social.

La columna de Nelson es un monumento situado en Trafalgar Square, Londres, Inglaterra, en homenaje a Horatio Nelson, almirante británico fallecido en el transcurso de la batalla de Trafalgar.

La columna se erigió entre 1840 y 1843 para conmemorar la muerte del almirante. La estatua mide 5,5 metros, y se yergue sobre una columna de granito de 46 metros de altura. La estatua mira hacia el sur, al Palacio de Westminster, a través del Pall Mall.

La parte superior de la columna consta de un capitel corintio basado en el Foro de Augusto de Roma, y está decorado con hojas de acanto de bronce, procedentes de la fundición de cañones británicos. El pedestal cuadrado está decorado con cuatro plafones que describen las cuatro grandes victorias de Nelson (Trafalgar, Nilo, Cabo de San Vicente y Copenhague), siendo también el material empleado el bronce, en este caso resultado de fundir las armas francesas capturadas.

El monumento fue diseñado por el arquitecto William Railton en 1838. Los cuatro leones, diseñados por Edwin Landseer, se añadieron a la base de la columna en 1867.

Golden Square, Soho, London in the City of Westminster is one of the historic squares of Central London. The square is just east of Regent Street and north of Piccadilly Circus.

Probably laid down according to plans by Sir Christopher Wren, this west London square was brought into being from the 1670s onwards. It very rapidly became the political and ambassadorial district of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, housing the Portuguese embassy among others.

The town house of the first Viscount Bolingbroke, much favoured by Queen Anne, was situated on the square. The statue of George II is believed to have come from Cannons House.

The square features, albeit in a fictional context, in the third part of Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle, The System of the World. An important scene in A Handful of Dust, by Evelyn Waugh, takes place in a nightclub in the fictional Sink Street, off Golden Square.

Golden Square also features in Charles Dickens' The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, as the square where Ralph Nickleby lives in a spacious house and has his "establishment". Dickens describes the square thus

Although a few members of the graver professions live about Golden Square, it is not exactly in anybody's way to or from anywhere. It is one of the squares that have been; a quarter of the town that has gone down in the world, and taken to letting lodgings. Many of its first and second floors are let, furnished, to single gentlemen; and it takes boarders besides. It is a great resort of foreigners. The dark-complexioned men who wear large rings, and heavy watch-guards, and bushy whiskers, and who congregate under the Opera Colonnade, and about the box-office in the season, between four and five in the afternoon, when they give away the orders,--all live in Golden Square, or within a street of it. Two or three violins and a wind instrument from the Opera band reside within its precincts. Its boarding-houses are musical, and the notes of pianos and harps float in the evening time round the head of the mournful statue, the guardian genius of a little wilderness of shrubs, in the centre of the square. On a summer's night, windows are thrown open, and groups of swarthy moustached men are seen by the passer-by, lounging at the casements, and smoking fearfully. Sounds of gruff voices practising vocal music invade the evening's silence; and the fumes of choice tobacco scent the air. There, snuff and cigars, and German pipes and flutes, and violins and violoncellos, divide the supremacy between them. It is the region of song and smoke. Street bands are on their mettle in Golden Square; and itinerant glee- singers quaver involuntarily as they raise their voices within its boundaries.

Villiers Street is a street in London connecting The Strand with The Embankment. It was built by Nicholas Bourbon in the 1670s on the site of York House, the property of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham whose name the street commemorates. A water gate in nearby Embankment Gardens, is the only remnant of the mansion, and shows the original position of the River Thames.

John Evelyn lived here in the 17th century and the Irish writer, Richard Steele lodged here from 1712, and founded both The Spectator and The Tatler magazines. The Charing Cross Hospital Medical School was founded here in 1834, this is now a part of the Imperial College Faculty of Medicine. Prior to 1865, Villier's street ran down the hill, directly to a wharf by the river, known as Villier's Wharf. This was swept away in 1865, by the construction of the Victoria Embankment, with its sewers and District line railway. The River was now moved back some 50 m from the foot of Villiers Street.

Housing on the west side of the street was demolished in the 1860's to make way for Charing Cross Station. Rudyard Kipling lived at number 43 in 1889-91 and here wrote the partly autobiographical novel The Light That Failed, which contains references to the area. Kipling remarks that:
From my desk I could look out of my window through the fanlight of Gatti’s Music-Hall entrance, across the street, almost on to its stage. The Charing Cross trains rumbled through my dreams on one side, the boom of the Strand on the other, while, before my windows, Father Thames under the Shot Tower walked up and down with his traffic.

After World War II Gatti's became the noted Players' Theatre Club, specialising in music hall entertainments. This has become the New Players' Theatre, adjacent to the Heaven nightclub.
