Whitehall Palace (in English: Whitehall Palace) was the principal residence of the English kings in London from 1530 to 1698.
The palace was growing organically around the former residence of Cardinal Wolsey until it became the largest palace in Europe, with more than 1500 rooms. Whitehall was not, however, a single building but rather a heterogeneous and chaotic complex of different buildings from different times.
In 1698, the palace suffered a dreadful fire that destroyed most of the complex, especially the old Tudor buildings with wooden roofs. The Banqueting House, a party pavilion designed by Iñigo Jones and whose ceiling was decorated by Rubens, was saved from the fire.

The Carlton House was a London mansion that served as a home for the ruling prince for a few decades. It was between Pall Mall and The Mall, in the St. James district of the British capital, west of Trafalgar Square.
The house was built in the early eighteenth century for Henry Boyle, baron of Carlton, going into royal domain when it was acquired by Frederick, prince of Wales in 1732. His grandson expanded the house with the help of the architect Henry Holland between 1782 and 1796. The location of the house was one of the reasons for the creation of the ceremonial route made by John Nash.
Carlton House was spacious and opulent. In many countries he would receive the name of palace, but when the ruling prince became George IV in 1820, he said that his official residence, St. James's palace and that of his father Jorge III, Buckingham House were inadequate for his needs. It was thought to expand Carlton House, but in the end it was decided to turn Buckingham House into Buckingham Palace. Carlton House was finally demolished in 1825.

The Theater Royal, Haymarket (also known as the Haymarket Theater or the Little Theater) is a theater located in London whose origin dates back to 1720. In 1766, thanks to the sponsorship of the Duke of York, younger brother of the monarch, Jorge III, who managed a real patent, the theater was recognized as real theater.
The original building was a little further north, on the same street. It is in its current location since 1821, and was redesigned by John Nash.
The Haymarket has been the scene of some significant innovations in the theater. In 1873 the first matinee session was scheduled (representation that takes place early in the afternoon), establishing a custom that other theaters followed very soon. Six years later, its auditorium was restructured and equipped for the first time with a proscenium. Its current capacity is 888 spectators.
The building was declared a classified monument in 1970.

The National Gallery
The National Gallery is the main art museum in London, located on the northern edge of Trafalgar Square in the city of Westminster, in the center of Greater London. Opened in 1824, it has a collection of more than 2300 paintings, mostly European, from a large historical period between 1250 and 1900. For its content it is a gallery and not a generalist museum, as it does not exhibit sculptures or other arts, which are shown in other important museums of the capital. Sculptures and decorative arts are in the Victoria and Albert Museum; the British Museum houses archeology and drawings, mainly; and post-1900 art is exhibited at Tate Modern. Some paintings by British authors are exhibited in the National Gallery, but the National Collection of British Art is mainly concentrated in the Tate Britain museum, specifically dedicated to the art of the country.
The National Gallery is an exempt charity (non-profit organization) and a public department of the Department of Culture, Media and Sports. Its collection belongs to the English people and access is free, although for some temporary exhibitions yes Payment of a ticket is required. The National Gallery is considered one of the most visited art museums in the world after the Louvre Museum in Paris, the British Museum in London, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Unlike comparable museums on the European continent, such as the Parisian Louvre or the Prado in Madrid, the National Gallery was not formed by nationalizing a real art collection. The collection of English monarchs subsists today as an independent entity (Royal Collection). The National Gallery was created with a didactic purpose, to make art accessible to all social classes, and took its first steps in 1824 when the British government bought 38 paintings of the heirs of John Julius Angerstein, an insurance broker and patron of the arts. After this foundational purchase, the gallery was enriched mainly with acquisitions made by its first directors (highlights Sir Charles Lock Eastlake) and private donations, which include about two thirds of the collection. The current repertoire is small in figures compared to many European national museums, but it is encyclopedic in scope; many of the greatest achievements of Western painting "from Giotto to Cézanne" are represented with important examples. It used to be said that this museum was one of the few with national rank that has all its works exposed, given its high quality but currently it does not happen like this: the museum does have stored works, due to the constant numerical growth of the collection and an exhibition of the most comfortable paintings.
The current National Gallery building was designed by William Wilkins between 1832 and 1838. Only the facade in Trafalgar Square remains essentially unchanged since its origin, as the building has been expanding along its facades throughout history. Wilkins' primitive building was often criticized for its impersonal design and for its lack of space; the second problem was alleviated by the establishment of the Tate Gallery for British art in 1897. However, the museum continued to require more space and at the end of the 20th century added the Sainsbury wing, an extension on the west side of the museum designed by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown who is a notable example of Postmodernist architecture in England.

Charing Cross is the name of one of the most important train stations in London, but also, although less known, the city center itself.
Its denomination is due to the old village of Charing that was one mile (1’6 kilometers) from old London. There was a road that ran from Ludgate (an entrance to the London wall) to the Palace of Westminster. In Charing there were numerous inns where the people who crossed the road stopped and spent the night and in this way the village grew.
At the moment it is the point from where the distances by road to London are measured, and formerly it served to fix the scope of the laws according to the distance that separated them from Charing Cross.
The etymology of Charing could come from "Chere-Reine", that is, "Dear Queen" or also from "cerring" which means "curve" as a 90 degree that makes the Thames.

The Northumberland House was a huge, now missing, Jacobin-style mansion located at the western end of the Strand in London and its construction dates back to 1605. It was demolished in 1874. It was named that way because for most of its history it was the London residence of the Percy family, whose members were counts and, later, Dukes of Northumberland, one of the richest and most prominent English aristocratic dynasties for many centuries. In his last years he had views of Trafalgar Square.

10 Downing Street
The number 10 of Downing Street is the official residence and work office of the first lord of the Treasury and the prime minister of the United Kingdom. His Majesty's Government headquarters are located on Downing Street in the City of Westminster in London, England.
The center of the United Kingdom Government is the home and workplace of the prime minister, with offices for secretaries, assistants and advisers. It also contains conference rooms and dining rooms where the prime minister meets with other foreign leaders and dignitaries. The building is near the Palace of Westminster, which houses the Parliament of the United Kingdom, and Buckingham Palace, residence of Queen Elizabeth II.
In its origins the number 10 were three houses. In 1732 King George II gave these three houses to Sir Robert Walpole as thanks to the services rendered to the nation. Walpole accepted them but on the condition that they would be a gift to the office of the first lord of the Treasury rather than a gift to himself. Walpole hired William Kent to join them in the same building, which is what is now known as 10 Downing Street.
The reorganization was not an immediate success. Despite its large size and location, there are few prime ministers who have lived there. The number 10 was closed many times to proceed to its demolition, due to its maintenance cost and the neglected and decadent state. [Citation needed] However, the number 10 survived and was linked to many of the great statesmen and events of the British history Gradually, people began to appreciate its historical value. In 1985, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said that the number 10 had become "one of the most precious jewels of national heritage."
