London's Smallest Police Station is a tiny building that served as a proper station house, back in its day. Located in Trafalgar Square, this miniature police station has just about enough space for one policeman. It was a significant spot in the 1930s, when it was used to shoot rifles at protesters and violent mobs. Today however, it no longer functions as a police station, and is mostly used as a storage space for sweepers and cleaners.
This ornate, Edwardian arch (which usually goes unnoticed) spans the entrance to The Mall from Trafalgar Square. Commissioned by Edward VII, the Admiralty Arch is actually a set of five arches in Portland stone which mark the royal route to St Paul's Cathedral. Traffic and pedestrians pass through the outer arches, while the central arch remains closed except when it is opened to allow the sovereign to pass through on State occasions.
Originally known for its post war farces, the theatre was accordingly called 'The Whitehall Farces'. The name then changed to 'The Whitehall Theatre' and is now Trafalgar Studios at the Whitehall Theatre. Since then the theater has put on a variety of performances that range from plays to musicals, but today remains committed to intelligent drama and intelligent musicals. The theater seats 480 people but has no wheelchair access. There are no dining facilities but there is a main bar and a smaller one in the foyer of the theater. The theater is currently on lease to the Oxford Stage Company so this respected company produces the majority of shows. (Call +44 844 871 7627 for more.)
Located in the buzzing Trafalgar Square, Fourth Plinth is a one of a kind 19th-century platform which was built with the aim of displaying an equestrian monolith of William IV. However today, it is the most high-profile and provocative contemporary art piece in the UK wherein it commissions world-class artists to make challenging new works for the historic heart of the capital. Trafalgar Square is London's most grandiose and theatrical public space and the sculptures here are aimed at triggering public debate about contemporary art in public spaces. The various displays that have been put up here include Yinka Shonibare's Nelson's ship in a bottle, Antony Gormley's One & Other, Thomas Schütte’s Model for a Hotel, Marc Quinn's sculpture Alison Lapper Pregnant and others.
