Go on foot from Trafalgar square down this road. Every building aroud is historical. Take a pick to 10 Downing Street, and continue southward to the Parliament squre and Big Ben. You can go there by bus, but walking is better.

Typical British grandeur packed full of history everywhere you look. Architecture galore and a must for anyone visiting London to absorb the city as a whole.

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,
