ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD . . .
Home to London’s iconic landmarks such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament (also known as the Palace of Westminster), and Buckingham Palace, the borough of Westminster is what one would call “signature” London. Westminster’s distinct identity as a historical cornerstone and the heart of the Government is firmly etched into its streets. Westminster Abbey, the traditional place of coronation and burial for many British monarchs, including Queen Elizabeth I, has been a place of worship for over 1,000 years. A hub of the internationally rich and powerful, Westminster neighborhoods portray an air of elegance and is home to some of the best hotels in London, such as The Dorchester and Claridge’s, as well as a variety of tourist attractions, shopping and dining destinations. One can find a moment of calm and tranquility in a quiet corner of The Wolseley, discover inspiration on the walls of the Royal Academy of the Arts or a Mayfair art gallery, or enjoy an afternoon of shopping at some of the best destinations in the city.
