Discover Westminster

Discover the architecture and design that make Westminster great through self-guided walks which anyone can enjoy during lunch, after work or on a weekend break in London. 

A walk through Westminster is a walk through time; every corner holds a piece of history waiting to transport you to another age and each street holds a key to its own unique past.

Tell us about your walk. Send pictures and comments to our blog, to the Archives Centre or tag us on Instagram.
