Admiralty Arch was commissioned by King Edward VII in memory of Queen Victoria, and was designed by Sir Aston Webb, who was also designed The Mall and main facade at Buckingham Palace. The building has been official residences of the First Sea Lords, a Royal Navy outpost, and a center for the UK Government's Cabinet Office.

Since its completion in 1910, the building has hosted famous figures from Sir Winston Churchill to author of the James Bond spy novels Ian Fleming. Admiralty Arch offers views down The Mall to Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, and Nelson's Column.
