South Westminster




Supported by London HQ (Northbank, Victoria, Victoria Westminster and Whitehall)

   

The South Westminster connected trails take us from Victoria, up to Westminster, through Whitehall and on into Northbank past many of the most well-known sites in London: Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and more. From the political ‘HQ’ of the capital and the buzz of the Strand, to hidden oases in the heart of the city and the majestic river Thames – the trails across South Westminster will surprise and delight young and old.

The trails will help participants discover how the South Westminster area is changing, not least with the ambitious Strand / Aldwych transformation project in Northbank, which will create a new cultural hub and pedestrianised piazza, as well as improving air quality and connectivity to other parts of the capital.
