Folks. I can't fathom how people rate this place well. Been to London so many times. Had amazing fish and chips all over the city. This stuff is utterly disgusting. The fish is nasty, batter is awful, clearly old frying oil. I really can't warn...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
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
