City of Westminster

To the west of the City of London lies the City of Westminster, Britain's seat of power. Home of the UK government at the Palace of Westminster and London's famous West End, known as 'Theatreland', the borough contains more landmarks per square mile than anywhere else in the capital. Trafalgar square, which is bordered by the National Gallery and dominated by Nelson's Column, is seen as the centre of London and acts as a hub for the rest of the borough. Westminster is also officially the Queen's place of residence, with Buckingham Palace within it's boundaries, as well as being a centre for public recreation: the Royal Albert Hall, Lord's Cricket Ground, Hyde Park and Regent's Park (home of London Zoo) are all in the borough.

Westminster also has some of the most exclusive shopping and residential districts in London, including Covent Garden, Soho and Mayfair.

The fictional detective from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novels, Sherlock Holmes, famously lived on Baker Street in Westminster.
