Craig’s London blog> Read Craig’s review of Admiralty Arch  Check out my London blog for a full review, with a video. Feel free to ask me a question about Admiralty Arch

Admiralty Arch continues the naval theme that dominates Trafalgar Square. It takes its name from the Admiralty building to the south.

Although it looks like a monument, it is actually an office building with rooms inside. It was commissioned by King Edward VII in memory of his mother, Queen Victoria.

The inscription along the top reads: ANNO DECIMO EDWARDI SEPTIMI REGIS VICTORIÆ REGINÆ CIVES GRATISSIMI MDCCCCX, which is Latin for In the tenth year of King Edward VII, to Queen Victoria, from most grateful citizens, 1910.

Craig’s review of London Buses I'm fifth in line behind three beer bottles and a half-eaten hamburger in a sauce-splattered carton. The other guy standing here is trying to peel the pages of his rain-sodden newspaper apart while we're waiting for the bus to loom out of the morning mist. There's a stream of headlights approaching down the road but by the time they arrive they have revealed themselves to be cars… continued
Craig’s review of Leicester Square Everybody looks wrecked in the morning but I'm the middle-aged kind of wrecked, where you roll out of bed feeling like you've only had five minutes kip. These sleeping kids in Leicester Square are the other type: they look like they're at the tail-end of a long night out that still hasn't ended yet. I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore -- I much prefer Leicester Square during th… continued
