start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,

Yes the way the gardens are landscaped by the bridge allows you to sit on wooden benches by the grass & "Love" steel sculpture. Down the other end is a small park area with more sturdy benches in it.
