Why Move to Westminster?
Mention the name Westminster and most people will think of the UK government. Of course, it is because it is home to the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the seat of the UK Government.
It is also an exceptional place to live. It is both a borough and a city.
Westminster became a city in 1540, and historically, it was a part of the ceremonial county of Middlesex.
One of the 33 boroughs that comprise Greater London, it is situated in the heart of the city and boasts a population of over 200,000 residents, quite a lot more than many realise.
If you choose to make this incredible location home, you will share it with some famous neighbours including the King and Queen and the Prime minister!
For those who call Westminster home the iconic streets like Oxford, Bond and Regent are totally at your disposal, and, instantly recognizable sights, such as the iconic Big Ben to the regal Buckingham Palace are also on your doorstep.
There is no need to travel far for a good night out either. Soho’s vibrant and trendy atmosphere is home to more restaurants, bars, clubs, and cafes than most other districts in London put together.
If you need to get out of Westminster and travel to other places across London, the Borough has a choice of 30 different underground stations. There will be one close to you no matter where you live.
There is a home for everyone’s budget but more so if you have large pockets. Cheaper homes are hard to find, but it is possible to own a home in Westminster that does not break the £1 million price barrier.
Few would argue that fact that Westminster is far from an ordinary place to live. On the contrary, its uniqueness is exactly what makes it such a desirable, high-demand district in which to set up a home.
Westminster Schools & Education
If you move to the district with children, their education is going to be at the forefront of your mind.
However, you will not need to worry too much because Westminster is home to several excellent schools, both state-funded and independent.
You will need to apply for a school place for your child. You can do this via the Westminster Council Website.
With so many incredible educational institutions dotted right across London, the choices are pretty much endless.
Things to do in Westminster
As Westminster is located in the heart of the capital you are surrounded by iconic landmarks, cultural attractions, and entertainment venues. In fact, it stands as the London district with the highest concentration of instantly recognisable sights.
There are over 11,000 listed buildings in Westminster, and 78% of the borough is in a designated conservation area.
These are just a few of the things you can do in the area:
Houses of Parliament: Not to be missed, you should join a tour to really get the best out of this historical attraction. We all know that it is the home of British politics but there is so much more to learn about one of the world’s most famous buildings.
Big Ben: When your tour of Parliament is done, Big Ben has got to be next, the two go hand in hand. You need to be reasonably fit to enjoy this one.
The spiral staircase has 334 steps which lead to the belfry where Big Ben (the bell) sits. You will see the inner workings of the clock mechanism and stand next to the world-famous Big Ben bell as it strikes the hour.
St. James’s Park: Spanning 57 acres of green space, was initially an enclosed deer park near the used by King Henry VIII in the 1530’s. Today, this beautiful royal park offers a serene escape in the heart of London, with a lake, gardens, and plenty of wildlife.
Trafalgar Square: An open public area that is home to a number of London’s top attractions such as the famous lion statues, the iconic fountains, and Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square.
The Churchill War Rooms: One of the five branches of the Imperial War Museum that comprises the Cabinet War Rooms, a historic underground complex that housed a British government command centre throughout WW2, and the Churchill Museum, a biographical museum exploring the life of British statesman Winston Churchill.
Westminster Bridge: The first bridge over the Thames was built between 1739-1750 but was demolished because it was too expensive to maintain.
It was replaced in 1862 and is now the oldest surviving road bridge in central London spanning the Thames. It also offers superb views of the London Eye and the city skyline.
The Shard: Just a little outside of Westminster, but nonetheless a great attraction to visit. A 72-storey skyscraper standing at 1016 feet high, it is the tallest building in the UK. The observation deck offers breath taking panoramic views of London.
The housing landscape in Westminster offers a diverse range of options.
There are plenty of renovated period properties, particularly flats and apartments available, and a few houses are still available within the borough.
It is worth noting that Westminster is home to some of the most upscale and costly properties in London, primarily due to its central and sought-after location in the heart of the capital.
Even the cheapest homes on the market are out of reach financially for most of us.
Some of the most expensive districts sit in or close to Westminster, Mayfair, Chelsea, Kensington, Knightsbridge, and Belgravia to name a few.
For homes that are a little more budget-friendly, head to nearby areas such as Pimlico or Westbourne Green. Here you will find prices are somewhat cheaper.
Unfortunately, there are very few places in central London where you will find any homes even close to the UK National Average.
