Admission to the Cathedral is free but donations are gratefully received Tower Lift - £6 adult; £3 concession; £14 family ticket (2 adult and 2 children) If you enter the Cathedral at a quiet moment in the day, don’t imagine that it is always like...more

Touring Westminster (in between Parliament and Methodist Hall) gives you a feeling of British history - tour guides are great but arrange in advance to avoid long waits - pricey admission but once you see the interior, you will understand
It is an active church, still use for regular frequent masses; it is the mother church of Catholic Church in England and Wales, the largest church and the seat of the Archbishop of Westminster. Not very old church, just built in the end of 19th...More
Do not be confused as Westminster Cathedral is not the same as, or nearby Westminster Abbey. The Cathedral is a beautiful and modern cathedral near Victoria Station. Should you be visiting one of the many local restaurants or hotels take a few minutes to walk...More
We meant to take a regular tour of the cathedral. But we took too long enjoying the Museums and Buckingham palace. We got to the Cathedral at 3:35pm. The gate said last tour at 3:30pm! :(. The Guard took pity on us and said. Well...More
This Catholic cathedral is imposing on the exterior, and incomplete on the interior, meaning the full panoply of frescoes awaits the future. We attended a solemn requiem mass honoring the 100th anniversary of the WW I. The choir was beautiful, and I suspect any opportunity...More
You don't expect a 'modern' Byzantine catholic cathedral in Central London, complete structurally but like all great cathedrals a work in progress as complex mosaic decoration (in many styles) creeps round, many chapels now complete, but the domes and ceiling still blackened with candle soot....More
Near Victoria Station this Catholic cathedral is a must visit on a fine day. Take the elevator up the Tower. Very helpful fellow rides up with you. The day I went it was windy so he opened one of the four viewing bays that was...More
The Roman Catholic Church wasn't restored in England until the late 19th century, so the church does a great job of paying respect to those that were persecuted in prior decades and centuries. The architecture is unique when compared to other London churches. As a...More
We decided to take some time out and look inside this interesting building which we have passed by on numerous occasions in the past. It is rather more modern than most cathedrals in major cities (being a lot younger) and less ornate. Quite dark (&...More
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.
