London is jam packed with sites of historical significance. This is one of those special places - Big Ben, Parliament, etc.

We visited Westminster Abbey and liked it more than Notre Dame in Paris. Many Kings, Queens, and Prime Ministers are Buried here. With you ticket you get an audio for visitors. We bought the London Pass which gets you into a lot of attractions in London.

As all neighborhoods in London make me happy, Westminster is great too. The Abbey and those bells ringing is memorable. Not to be missed.

Being from London have visited Westminster many times. Seeing Big Ben and hearing it chime is what London is all about . You will often see MPs around , so watch out. . It can get rather crowded. Not easy to get places to eat cheaply.

A great place and one of London's signature . Be prepared for quite a long tail line. It took us 40 minutes to get there . Admission sites in 20 GBP While in London included , used and would recommend it to visitors to London

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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.
