"The Carlisle Arms, Soho is the site of London's only death caused by choking on a billiard ball. In 1893, Walter Cowle boasted that he could fit the whole ball in his mouth, but unfortunately for him, it got stuck..."

The Mall is an iconic landmark framing views of the country's most well known building, Buckingham Palace.
