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.
