Admiralty Arch, London
Admiralty arch is a ceremonial gateway that leads from the southwest corner of Trafalgar Square into The Mall. It was commissioned by King Edward VII in memory of his mother, Queen Victoria and was designed in 1910 by Sir Aston Webb.
There are five arches within the structure, three large central arches and two smaller ones on each outside. The small arches are for pedestrian traffic, the central arch is used by cars on state occasions only and the other two large arches are used by vehicles.
An unusual feature of the arch is its nose, which is built into the northernmost arch. No-one knows why it is there, although it has been suggested that it was added to honour the Duke of Wellington who was known for having a large nose.
