    I went back to zone a shuffleboard with the usual enthusiasm last summer but now after the tragic events of terrorism remembrance proud is a little clouded. I had in fact admired as ever with the enthusiasm already described in my previous review, and now I am attaching some pictures of this visit. If you enjoyed this review, you can read about my many other out of London and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

    This is a a very busy bridge, traveled heavily with tourists. From the bridge you can see The Eye, the back of the Parliament building, Big Ben and more.  more »

    Walk over from the London Eye to the Westminster underground station and you'll get the classic views of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Security barriers now separate traffic and pedestrians. W...  more »

  • You can get some nice views from this bridge (Big Ben, London Eye, River Thames, Parliament,...). It's always crowded (a bad meeting point if you ask me, cause you'll never find your friends), but you will still be able to take some nice photos. Easily accessible on foot or with public traffic (Westminster Tube Station is right next to it). Worth visiting during the day and at night for different views.
  • If you come to London and don't visit this place is like not visiting London. Yes, there are too many people. Yes, is a hassle to get there sometimes. Yes, it will take you some time to take some pictures until one person will finally stop and not interrupt. Yes, you will be annoyed by people looking everywhere, stopping in front of you, bumping, everything. But it's amazing. The view is incredible. Make sure you go during the day and night. Extremely romantic, dramatic and a little surreal.
  • One of 'the' places that simply has to be visited despite the crowds of tourists. ;-) Take photos / selfies with great backgrounds: the House of Parliament / Queen Elizabeth Tower ("Big Ben") on the west side of the bridge and the London Eye on the east. Also check out the wonderful South Bank Lion statue on the east side. My favourite London sculpture.
  • If you are on one side of the River Thames and you no longer want to be on that side but be on the other side instead then this may well be the solution to your problems because what Westminster Bridge does it is actually allows you walk over the top of it in a completely straight line so that you eventually end up on the complete opposite side of the river to where you started and it is brilliant because as you walk over the bridge you can also look at interesting things on both sides of the river as many times as you want, like one time I was strolling along the bridge and then I stopped and I stared at the Houses of Parliament for nine hours in a row so that I could make sure Big Ben was working correctly by playing the correct number of ‘bongs’ on the hour every hour and when I was satisfied that Big Ben was working correctly I thanked him for informing me of the correct time and wished him a nice day and if you ever walk along Westminster Bridge and you hear Big Ben telling you the time then you should also say thank you to him because sometimes he feels a bit lonely and unappreciated and we could all do with a little more friendliness and appreciation towards one other these days!
  • A great vista. Take time to reflect on those who died here in 2017. Best seen on foot.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
