Great buildings, not least Westminster Abbey and Parliament; but poor urban design makes it not a great place to stop: heavy traffic; narrow pavements; hard to access central green area; few amenities
Two traffic milestones occurred in this square. In 1868 the world’s first traffic lights were installed here (which later blew up) and in 1926, it became Britain’s first official roundabout.
Drinks-wise, there’ll be a three-course cocktail menu that’ll have even the booziest guest feeling delicate in the morning. The perfect pre- or post-dinner pitstop.
Formerly a warren of shops, slum dwellings and alleyways, and half a millennia before that an island. Cleared in the 19th century and on its way to what we know today.
Architecture from the Elizabeth Tower, Palace of Westminster, Portcullis House, and more besides. A great place to people watch. Often busy with tourists.
Great experience! Food was amazing and the service was excellent. Had a drink at the before dinner which was quite nice.
Now this place looks more like construction site, then nice lawn square it used to be. Bloody scamp protesters.
A good stroll in area and u can see the guards. But don't be a tourist and harass them they deserve better
