To be standing in a place that has seen so much history was awe inspiring. To see the people who are honored here, men like CS Lewis and William Wilberforce was amazing. To be standing where kings are buried and where queens were married was seriously incredible. Brush up on your history before you get here. I wish I had.... More

You must visit Westminster to get a truly rounded experience of London. The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben are classically unmissable attractions.

You can take the picture with the most London's icons and landmark here. You can definitely have the Big Ben, House of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, London's red bus and the iconic red phone booth in one frame. It's easy to get here. Take the Jubilee/ District/ Circle Line and get off at Westminster Tube Station.

Fantastic views if you can push past all the tourists, but we need tourists to boost our economy. It's a shame the gates were all locked.

Spent several hours walking this area and taking in the beautiful and historic buildings. Stopped to talk to locals, who were always friendly and helpful. Worth the trip!

Amazing buildings, statues and so much to see and take in. Fabulous photo opportunities and not far from a lot of the popular attractions in London. We took in some great pics and complimented the ground up ones with some aerial off the London eye.

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.
