Ministry of Defence

The Ministry of Defence is perhaps renowned for its most famous employee, a certain Mr. James Bond, who has made espionage look like a yearlong cocktail party. In real life, the job may involve much more paperwork than car chases and high-speed boat pursuits, but the Ministry of Defence do a sterling job of protecting London and the UK.

 

"Identifying Weapons of Mass Destruction"

 

The Ministry, or MoD, is located close to Embankment, in Whitehall, a large, neo-classical style building on the north bank of the River Thames, on the former site of King Henry VIII's Palace of Whitehall, of which the wine cellar still exists.  The MoD is the government department responsible for the implementation of the government defence policy and is also the headquarters of the British Armed Forces. Day to day duties of the MoD include identifying Weapons of Mass Destruction and threats of international terrorism, surveying the actions of failed and failing states, identifying threats to the UK's interests and contingency planning and defence procurement within the armed forces.

 

"Formed after the First World War"

 

The Ministry of Defence was formed after the First World War, when strategizing between the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force meant that military maneuvers could be clunky and unsuccessful. The Ministry would be a way to oversee the movements of all three forces. However, the role of Minister of Defence wasn't created until 1940, when Winston Churchill wanted to take the reigns of the armed forces. Today, the Ministry controls all facets of the armed forces. There has not been cause for direct military confrontation since the end of the Cold War, but nowadays, terrorism is the Ministry's main concern.

 

"Researching new technologies, which will benefit the country"

 

The MoD is also responsible for the health and welfare of former officers and organises pensions and benefits for employees of the armed forces. It also has a dedicated educational programme for young children and runs a programme of art and photography exhibitions throughout the year, so it is worth checking what's on during your stay. The Ministry is also active in researching new weaponry and scientific technology, which will benefit the country, training and exercise for public safety and policy strategy and planning. It’s important to also remember that the MoD is in place to uphold the peace, so diplomacy, conflict prevention and stabilization are also a large part of their mission.

 

"Close to major London sights"

 

Located in Westminster, the MoD is very close to major London sights such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, so it is worthwhile booking a hotel in the area. Jolly St Ermins is an elegant 4-star hotel with traditional Victorian decor. The Crowne Plaza Hotel St James is a more modern establishment with high quality service and an award-winning Health Spa. Sanctuary House Hotel may be basic, but it offers fantastic room rates for such a central location and has charmingly eclectic design features, and the Royal Horseguards is the perfect hotel for James Bond wannabes, with sophisticated decor, opulent bedrooms and a cocktail bar worthy of a tuxedo.
