  • Definitely a nice vantage point in the heart of London: around the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey, the Church of Saint MArgaret and the Big Ben. Also very nice commemorative statues, with Churchill, Lincoln, Mandela, Gandhi etc..

  • The Parliament Square is adjacent to the Westminster Palace in the heart of the historic centre of London. Around the place buzzing traffic on a busy street. There is a green area with many interesting statues of famous statesmen in the middle of the square. The course is made in the course of a transformation in 1868. This was site of the first traffic light in the world. This is unfortunately no longer available. We liked to be here very well. Although it is loud and hectic, we have looked at the monuments alone in the middle of the square. If you then your gaze on the wonderful buildings around the square, already the heart goes up one. Conclusion: Go and look, it's worth.
