A Jubilee Walk in London
How to find the Jubilee Walk Way in the Smoke
Location: Parliament Square, Westminster
Description: On the north side of Parliament square there is a red phone box.
To the left of the box is a metal pole with a disc on.
Around the disc it states that it is the Jubilee walk way and on top of the disc is a representation of a crown.
Essential London - you really couldn't be anywhere else. A classic collection of the capital's most iconic landmarks awaits you on 15 mile long The Jubilee Walkway. Designed to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, the original route connects all of the city's most famous sights, from Buckingham Palace to the stately dome of St Paul's. Later, to celebrate Her Majesty's 50 years' reign two additional loops were added encompassing Bloomsbury and the City itself.
