Ministry of Defence

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Ministry of Defence

The Ministry of Defence was built over the site of the Whitehall Palace, dating back to the 12th century. In the Tudor Wine Cellar, patrol guards have seen a man walking through the corridors; when confronted, the man had vanished, or sometimes would walk through walls.
