Old Westminster

Old Westminster is London at its grandest: the place where kings and queens are crowned, where they lived, and often were buried.

Old Westminster

It’s the forge of the national destiny, the place where the heart of the Empire beat, the Mecca of politicians throughout the ages.  The past here is cast in stone and we take it all in: ancient Westminster Hall, the Houses of Parliament, the Jewel Tower, Westminster Abbey, etc.  Embarras de richesse, we’ll also explore the private face of Westminster – the London equivalent of Georgetown.  Unlike the tourist hordes who never find them, we get to see the hidden and ever so picturesque Georgian back streets where all the political salons are!  We end very near the Cabinet War Rooms, the fortified bunker that housed Winston Churchill’s centre of operations during the war.  The walk ends very near Parliament Square, just a stone’s throw from Westminster Tube.
