Westminster

Tourists flock to Westminster to see Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

Visitors can enter the Abbey (currently around £20) to explore the pageant of British history displayed inside this historic 700-year-old building. It is one of the United Kingdom's most notable religious buildings and the traditional place of coronation.

The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Visitors can take an audio tour of the Houses of Parliament at various times throughout the year.

Big Ben is widely considered to be a British cultural icon, the tower is one of the most prominent symbols of the United Kingdom and is often in the establishing shot of films set in London. The clock's movement is famous for its reliability. Essential maintenance will be carried out on the clock mechanism, which will be stopped for several months, during which there will be no chimes. Striking and tolling will however be maintained for important events such as New Year's Eve and Remembrance Sunday. Big Ben will resume striking and tolling in 2021

The Princes Square is situated in the London Borough of Westminster.
