Westminster is the political centre of the United Kingdom located in central London and bordering the River Thames. Join our expert guides for a variety of Westminster walking tours and discover the sights and history, visible and not, of Westminster.

Take a guided tour inside Westminster Abbey and see poet’s corner where Charles Dickens is buried. You will also find the resting places of prime ministers, Queens and Kings including the sainted Edward the Confessor. Find out about the royal Buckingham Palace and one of the most famous places in London the Palace of Westminster AKA the Houses of Parliament.

The Palace of Westminster is home to the two houses of the UK parliament, the House of Commons and the House of Lords. You can also see Big Ben here and Victoria Tower where the Queen enters for the State Opening of Parliament and Black Rod’s Garden Entrance.
