Quieter visiting times

Travel off-peak to make more space

We want everyone in Westminster to have a safe experience as shops and restaurants reopen, but we all have to play our part.

If you’re wanting to explore the shops and hospitality in Westminster, why not visit when it’s quieter?

Weekday mornings usually see lower visitor numbers, so make sure you think ahead about your journey by using the helpful information from Transport for London in the links below. It’s also easy to walk and cycle across the West End too.

What's more, many shops in Westminster have extended their opening hours to make it easier for shoppers to keep to social distancing advice and stay safe.
