37: Admiralty Arch on the Mall

Admiralty ArchAdmiralty Arch is the gateway to the Mall, a wide tree-lined avenue with red coloured surface tarmac leading to Buckingham Palace. Used by the civil service, there is office space above and on either side of the 3 arches, and sticking out of the wall of the third arch (on the right) is a curious model nose. It is said to have been put there as a good luck talisman in honour of the Duke of Wellington who was known for his prominent nose, and it is positioned at a convenient height for horseriders to touch when they are in the saddle.
