Whitehall

A road in Westminster, London, which is the main drag between Parliament Square and Trafalgar Square, the centre of HM Government and largely populated by government departments/ministries, making the term Whitehall shorthand for the central UK government. The road was named after the Palace Whitehall, a popular location for English monarchs between 1530 and 1698, when it burned down.
