Walking around this building took me a good two hours, but it was more than worth it. I enjoyed every moment of quietness and peacefulness.

Beautiful, stunning church with so much history. You must go inside light a candle and take the audio tour.

Amazing architecture to see close up. Massive buildings with the tower of Big Ben at one end. Right next to Westminster Abbey too. Very clean and well preserved.

I love this area of London...visited the Abbey, the audio tour is wonderful, narrated by Jeremy Irons when I went. So much to find wandering through the streets. I stayed in Pimlico, so just a 20 minute walk away.

The fee might be steep, but it is worth it. There are memorial plaques that remind you of the contributions of different English men and women. There are royals buried within the abbey as well. You will need the provided map to locate your interests. It is crowded, so it helps to be organized. Or maybe just sit and take... More

The magnitude of its history is astounding. Poets' Corner is a veritable who's who. An 800 year-old chair, what more can I say?

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
