A number of interesting, and well made sculptures are placed around this park that lies between Westminster and the houses of Parliament. Churchill, Gandhi, Mandela and Smutts are just a few. Worth a wander around if you are in the area.

If you have been visiting Westminster Abbey or Parliament, it's a nice square to sit and rest or have lunch. Some really good statues of Churchill, Gandhi and Mandela dotted around the square. There is traffic all the way round but you are somewhat sheltered...More

One of the busiest squares in London but if you take the time to just wander through it you will be rewarded if you look up. The old buildings and their frontages are worth it. You can pick out stone faces and images on the...More

If you stand just right in the square, you can get a great pic of both parliament and the tower in the background. It'll be different than the standard pic that everyone gets from the river side.

Even if you are not a big fan of old buildings like the Parliament, you need to see at least this square. It is like being in a movie.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
