No other street in Britain contains more landmarks to our island’s history than Whitehall. Here, we visit what was the most notorious address in London when Byron and Lady Caroline Lamb conducted their very public and tempestuous love affair; the Admiralty, where Nelson received his orders to attack the French; and fragments of the tennis courts where Anne Boleyn watched Henry VIII playing tennis. We witness documents that show how Churchill, in 1940, prepared for street fighting in Whitehall’s departments. Whitehall tells the story of our island race, its empire, its conquests and its decline, encapsulated in one small corner of the capital.
"Narrator John Telfer’s British heritage suits the history’s large lexicon, and his theatrical cadence makes it sound Shakespearean." (AudioFile)

Finding out about was on this street before and what has happened in some of the buildings that are there now.
I don't know anything to compare it to.
To serious to be moved.
A nice history through the centuries that this road has been here.
