We stayed at the Taj 51 during the first week of April 2015. The location is ideal for walking trips to Westminster Abby, Buckingham Place, and Trafalgar Square. For longer journeys it is very close to the Underground. The staff is very attentive and they even offer a complementary daily cocktail hour from 6-7PM.

We had a fabulous time at the Taj 51 suites and residences. The concierge staff was so helpful, from helping us plan our days to picking delicious restaurants for us.

We took our children to London over spring break and stayed at the Taj 51 based on recommendations from another family. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment and were blown away with how spacious it was the second we checked in. It was an enormous apartment, particularly for European standards. It had a full kitchen with island seating in... More

We had a very lovely stay at the TAJ 51 Buckingham Gate. Excellent location and delightful service. Our room was a 2 bedroom Falconers Suite and for what we paid, I was slightly disappointed.

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.
