In addition to the main tourist sites, Westminster is also known for its museums such as the Churchill War Room, The Guard’s Museum, and The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace.

The area is peppered with charming, traditional London pubs, cafes, and first-class restaurants serving Indian, Australian, Japanese, British, and Mediterranean cuisine. There are also several casual eateries and fast food outlets close to Palace Street.

Hotels in Westminster are a blend of 3, 4, and 5-star and boutique hotels set inside residential buildings.

The neighborhood can be covered easily on foot. It takes just 20 minutes to walk from the River Thames and Big Ben to Buckingham Palace. If you need public transport Westminster has 2 primary underground stations (Westminster and St James) and many bus routes passing through the area to points all over central London.
