Very busy environment with lots of ancient and historic buildings, also home to London eye. Buckingham Palace, hyde park, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben( you can see it immediately you come out of Westminster station) etc are all here.

Westminster is a part of London you can spend easily more than a day. This area offers so much for awesome visits and sights. Of course there are the "usual suspects" as Whitehall, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral and the Supreme Court, but there is also much to admire on a quieter level. Just alight not... More

You can also access Westminster via a short walk from the Lambeth area, which is on the other side of the Thames. Westminster is in short walking distance from various other... More

I guess there is no point writing a review to this, but if I have to say... been there just to take pictures, to take friends, to the new year's (which is OMG!). Just go and see it. You never forget the first time you see Ben,

We booked in advance and it made everything much nicer. Great history and the tour guide provided many interesting facts and we went from section to section.

The very iconic building is a definite must see. Can't take photos but that was expected. Tour takes an hour and a half and not many places to sit. We paid extra for afternoon tea and it was lovely. Doesn't look like much but defiantly fills you up.

Whilst the entry fee is hefty, the Abbey is just somewhere you must visit when in London, because it is so very LONDON! Yes the queue is often quite long and it is annoying they don't presell tickets, go in with a good attitude (there seems to always be lots of people here so everything is slow moving) enjoy the...

A real English emblematic building to see when you visit London. Architectural masterpiece easy reachable by underground. Near the underground exit there is a Caffè Nero in case you feel like a nice strong coffee prior or after visiting this site. For Westminster Abbey there is an entrance fee!
