World renowned landmarks
Westminster is awash with history and stunning architecture. Within an hour of a leisurely wander you could have seen Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street – to name but a few historical buildings. For the cultured of you Westminster isn’t lacking in art galleries (National Gallery & Tate Britain), or theatre (you have a plethora of theatres in the West End.).
If your legs aren’t quite up to it, or you simply don’t have the time to spare, getting about in Westminster by public transport couldn’t be easier. 10 out of the 11 underground lines all stop here and Westminster is serviced by 27 tube stations, and the buses – well you can’t go 5 seconds without spotting a London bus!
Westminster council tax is the lowest in the country – yup, that’s right, the very lowest! You might think then that it’s going to be a neglected area but not at all! Our streets are clean and our parks are beautifully kept!
You might think that living in Westminster would be like living in a concrete jungle, well, I can tell you that you would be very much mistaken. If you want to go for a run/practise some outside yoga/have a picnic/get away from the hubbub of it all – well you won’t have to travel very far to do so. The borough of Westminster has a grand total of 116 parks and open spaces to lose yourself in; these include small gardens as well as larger open spaces such as Green Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Regent’s Park & St James’s Park.
