UK: Westminster – A Visitor’s Guide

Sandra L. Pouncy

London is a huge city and Westminster is in Central London. It runs from the River Thames to Oxford Street. This area is home to many historical buildings, which makes it a place of interest for tourists and visitors alike. Here is our Westminster Visitor’s Guide which we hope helps you when planning your trip.

Famous Attractions

Westminster is home to the following:

  • Westminster Palace
  • Buckingham Palace
  • Westminster Abbey & Cathedral
  • West End Shopping

You may not be aware of the serviced apartments Westminster London has, with one- and two-bedroom units that are fully furnished, and with all the mod cons you would expect in a luxury London residence.

Guided Tours

You will find guided tours for the many attractions in Westminster. Search online for details; do your own research and explore at your own pace, if you want. You could thoroughly research the origins of the Abbey, which would make your visit more enjoyable. Also, let’s not forget boat trips along the River Thames, which are always available in the summer.

What Better Place To Stay While In London? 

Moving around in any city is tedious and it makes total sense to be as close to places of interest as you can. With serviced luxury apartments (check out the images on their website), you are within walking distance of many places on your list. Short stay is welcome and Google will help you to locate the best deals. Central London short stay serviced apartments offer the perfect solution. Many offer a concierge on arrival and with free Wi-Fi, you can stay connected throughout your stay and upload cool images of the major attractions to your social media accounts. Enjoy 5-star luxury at an affordable cost, especially when compared to hotel rates and you are within walking distance of many places.

Online Resources

If you want to know the history of Westminster Abbey or learn about the size and scope of Buckingham Palace, Google is your friend. The more you know about these historical sites, the right the experience will be. Planning your time is advised. Take a whole day for the Abbey (that isn’t really enough), while you can combine Buckingham and Westminster Palaces in a single day and even go back to your apartment for lunch. We all know how expensive it is to eat out in London, which is another reason to have a fully equipped kitchen, where you can prepare your favourite dishes.

Walking Distance

Why not explore Westminster on foot? Wear a good pair of comfortable walking shoes, and over a few days, you can pretty much cover Westminster. You can enjoy yourself at your own pace and when you fancy a rest, your apartment is just down the road.

Make sure that you have lots of digital memory to take hundreds of great images and some videos too – free Wi-Fi means you can upload to the cloud every evening and delete all the SD cards and start again. Spending a little time planning your trip will always pay dividends and staying in Westminster makes total sense.

We hope this Westminster Visitor’s Guide helps you when planning your trip.
