A Westminster holiday apartment offers luxurious accommodation located near some of the most important and popular London attractions. Your holiday rental may be a cosy apartment for two or a six bedroom stunner large enough for your entire family. Expect well-appointed kitchens and extras such as a washer and dryer, private terrace and modern décor. Each apartment is very well-appointed, so you will have everything that you need to enjoy your stay.
-Castles and palaces: So many castles and palaces are within a short distance of your lovely Westminster holiday apartments. See Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Banqueting House and St. James Palace. Study the differences in the architecture or just imagine what it would be like to live in one of these historic buildings.
-Museums: Another way to see some of the area’s treasures is by visiting some of the many nearby museums such as the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery, Tate Britain and Royal Mews. The Queen’s Gallery is extra special as it contains items actually owned by the Queen.
-Religious buildings: The important religious buildings near Westminster are as ornate and lovely as some of the palaces. Visit Westminster Abbey, St. Margaret’s Church, Westminster Cathedral and St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
-St. James Park: This park, which is surrounded by three palaces, has a long history. In the 16th century it was a royal hunting ground and has undergone many changes at the whim of different rulers. Today, the beautiful spot looks like a country estate and is as well-decorated as you would expect any royal garden to be.
-Shopping: The shopping in Westminster is quite unique. Instead of typical chain stores, you will find a series of unique shops selling things such as artisan cheese, rare books, top hats or hand crafted boots. You’ll also find a wine emporium that has been selling wine for more than 300 years.
The average temperature during the winter months is 5° to 6° C. During the spring you can expect average temperatures of 10° to 13° C. Summer brings average temperatures of 18° to 20° C. There is between 40 and 70 mm of rain per month, so bring your umbrella no matter what time of year you visit. Because Westminster doesn’t suffer from extreme temperatures at any time of year, there really isn’t a bad time to visit. You can enjoy the best weather in late spring or early summer, but you can avoid the biggest crowds by opting for a different time of year.
From Heathrow Airport (LHR) you can complete your journey to your Westminster holiday apartment via train. Westminster and Knightsbridge are two of the stations located nearby. You can also opt for a pre-booked car or taxi, which will make it easier, especially if you have a good bit of luggage.
