An interesting tourist spot with loads of photo opportunities. Obviously you have the parliament buildings, but there is also eleven statues of statesmen and other notable individuals in the square. Parliament Square is located at the northwest end of the Palace of Westminster, and right...More

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

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
