“Big Ben is amazing”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I stare at it and admire its perfectness. It's very easy to reach either by underground or bus. You can buy a one-day ticket which you can use all day for unlimited journeys by metro or bus.
You can cross the Street and visit Westminter Abbey and its crypt where the UK kings lay, but you will need at least 2 hours down there.

“The borough that has most of the landmarks of London”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

City of Westminster has a lot to offer, especially many of the sites mainly associated with London; Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, 10 Downing St, Oxford St, Regent St, Soho and many more. Whether you are a tourist or you live in London, you will definitely end up in Westminster soon enough. Make sure to walk around and take in everything it has to offer.

“Beautiful and Stunning ”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit! You can either pay the enteance fee and view at your leisure OR you can go to one of the services and get in for free. I recommend the Evensong - if you are a music lover, the choir cannot be beaten.

“Tonnes of History”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

There is a tonne of history in this church. When I was first in London, I didn't really have this on my agenda but made a last minute decision to go in as the line wasn't long. The price too almost held me back as it is a bit weird to have to pay to visit a church. However, I'm glad I did as the amount of history in this church exceeded my expectations. I still think the admission is much too expensive, as at the end of the day it is a church and should be made accessible to everyone and not everyone has the luxury to spend that much on admission. In saying that, if you are in London it is one of the best places to visit for its history. I would go back again.

“Nice Area to wander around”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We spent a bit of time just walking around taking stuff in, we also did a Photo Walk in the area and that showed some of the things we may have missed. Like the rest of the London there is always something new to discover. This is a spectacular part of the city, don't rush it.
