The South East England region
Westminster is an area of Central London (zone 1), within the City of Westminster, England. It lies on the north bank of the River Thames, southwest of the City of London and 0.5 miles (0.8 km) southwest of Charing Cross. It has a large concentration of London's historic and prestigious landmarks and visitor attractions, including the Palace of Westminster, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and Westminster Cathedral.
Historically a part of Middlesex, the name Westminster was the ancient description for the area around Westminster Abbey – the West Minster, or monastery church, that gave the area its name – which has been the seat of the government of England for almost a thousand years. Westminster is the location of the Palace of Westminster, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which houses the Parliament of the United Kingdom.
An exclusive area much favoured by diplomats and politicians. Close to many tourist sites and attractions.

Contrary to popular belief, the name "Big Ben" actually refers to the bell inside this famous landmark in London, not the tower or the clock itself. The clock tower is 316 ft. high and was completed between 1858 and 1859. The Roman numerals on the clock face measure 2 feet in length and, incredibly, the clock mechanism alone weigh around five tons.
Victoria Street, Westminster, London SW1 - England, UK
Christchurch Gardens is a public park near the Westminster end of Victoria Road in central London. The gardens are a popular place for office workers to enjoy their lunches in the sunshine as there are few other public parks within walking distance. The area is relatively simply designed, with a few trees and some seating but broadly it is just a green area with a lot of space for people to relax and take their feet off the streets.
10 Downing Street
10 Downing Street, Whitehall, London SW1A 2AA - England, UK
Home of the British Prime Minister, Number 10’s very ordinary address and the modest terraced façade are deceptive, giving little clue to the real size and grandeur within. Number Ten in fact consists of two houses. The house, which faces Downing Street, is a typical late 17th Century town house. But it conceals a complicated building, which was re-fronted in the 18th Century and enlarged in the 20th Century. Today, iron gates at the end of Downing Street prevent public access for security reasons.
The Mall, London SW1A 2WH - England, UK
At the time of its completion in 1911, Sir Aston Webb’s Triple Arched structure was used to house the offices of the Sea Lords. It is also the ceremonial entrance to the Mall, which leads down to Buckingham Palace. The arch was originally commissioned by King Edward VII, serving as a memorial for his late mother Queen Victoria. The Latin inscription along the top of the arch is a reminder of this. In English the words mean "In the tenth year of King Edward VII, to Queen Victoria, from most grateful citizens, 1910."
