St. Margarets stands next to Westminster Abbey as traditionally this was the parish church for local residents while the Benedictine monks worships separately in the Abbey. Make sure you visit both when you make a trip here. It's commonly referred to as the last church...More

St. Margarets church is located right next to Westminster Abbey and is a favourite venue for government workers and society weddings and other functions in church. Fantastic to visit this splendid little church. Best underground station would be Westminster Station.

Lovely church, not ostentatious, many interesting memorials. Staff friendly &not too many visitors. Sadly a young woman came in with micro shorts & low cut T shirt. I don't suppose God minded but it did show a lack of respect.

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
