Westminster Tours

star-4.5
47 Reviews
Westminster
Home to several of London’s most iconic attractions—including Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace—Westminster has been the capital’s political center for more than 1,000 years, and has been the setting of historical events, such as the Reformation, Gunpowder Plot, and Churchill’s World War II campaign.
 
The Basics
Explore the region on an immersive walking tour, or combine your visit with other highlights, taking advantage of bike, bus, or private tours to cover several attractions in one day. Discover Westminster’s movie locations on a Sherlock, James Bond, or Harry Potter-themed excursion, or tour an iconic landmark, such as Buckingham Palace. Alternatively, Thames cruises and photography tours can help you capture scenic views of the area.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to Westminster is a must for history fans, or anyone looking for classic London views.
  • As many of the landmarks are government or royal buildings, expect airport-style security checks upon entering.
  • Most of Westminster’s attractions are wheelchair-accessible, though some of the old buildings do have areas of restricted access to wheelchair users.
 
How to Get There
Westminster has its own Underground station, providing easy access to most of the district’s attractions. St. James’s Park is also nearby, while Victoria and Charing Cross main stations are a 20-minute walk away. Many local and hop-on hop-off buses also serve the area.
 
When to Get There
Westminster is striking at any time of year, but Westminster Abbey’s Christmas carol services provide a particularly lovely soundtrack to your sightseeing. The district is one of London’s major attractions, so avoid the crowds by setting out early or visiting late in the day.
 
London Heritage Sites
The Westminster district is home to roughly 1,100 nationally listed landmarks, while the Palace of Westminster itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kew’s Royal Botanic Gardens, the Tower of London, and Maritime Greenwich are also recognized by UNESCO for their cultural importance, and all provide fascinating insight into British national heritage.
