White Noise: Imperial history through the statues of Whitehall

Whitehall, once the administrative heart of the British Empire, at its height, ruled over a quarter of the world’s landmass and nearly a fifth of the world’s population.  This tour explores the empire’s history through Whitehall’s imperial statues.  Often overlooked and seen now as just “white noise”, largely unnoticed visual background noise to the city, each statue unlocks parts of Britain’s imperial history.  A gentle stroll through Whitehall looks at who these statues represent, their role in Britain’s imperial past and the history behind why they were erected.
