Westminster: The place with everything

Westminster: The place with everythingSmack-bang in the heart of London, Westminster is steeped in history and one of the most sought-after locations for people looking to rent or buy property in the capital.

It is home to the iconic landmarks such as the House of Parliament, Big Ben and the venue for Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, Westminster Abbey, making it a part of the city that everyone knows about.

With one edge along the north bank of the River Thames, there are fantastic views aplenty, while the range of attractions on offer in the West End is dizzying.

The City of Westminster borough also includes several desirable London suburbs, including Paddington, St Johns Wood and Ladbroke Grove, all of which are worth closer inspection when searching for a property to rent.

Not only that, the borough is home to three of the capital's best parks: Hyde Park, Regent's Park and Green Park, not to mention Buckingham Palace.

These are some of the most relaxing places in the world, full of manicured lawns, sumptuous flowers and wonderful wildlife.

Getting there is a piece of cake - as is heading out anywhere else, for that matter - thanks to the multitude of Tube lines, buses and trains that pass through the area.

In terms of schools, Westminster has some of the best performing institutions in the country, including the highly-rated St Joseph's RC Primary School.

Singletons can also take encouragement from the fact that people in this borough were found to be the most attractive in the capital, according to a study by Westminster University.

All things considered, though, it is the attractions on offer in the borough which set it apart from everywhere else.

Both Westminster Palace and Westminster Abbey are World Heritage Sites, while the parks could take a lifetime to explore thoroughly.

Tate Britain is one of the most celebrated art galleries in the world, showcasing works by Turner, Bacon and Constable in its great halls.

Some of London's best restaurants are also to be found here, including the super-trendy Ivy and Gordon Ramsay's three Michelin-starred 68 Royal Hospital Road.

In Soho, there are too many places to name, but rest assured there is something for everyone.

This area is also home to some of the most exciting bars anywhere in the country, alongside a plethora of live music venues.

London's theatre district is here as well, with some of the best-known shows playing night after night in world-famous places like the Queen's Theatre, Wyndham's Theatre and Her Majesty's Theatre.

And let's not forget the shopping - Oxford Street, Bond Street and Regent Street are all here, featuring the very latest fashions.

Overall, this is a part of London that really does cater for everyoneand it is jam-packed with beautiful heritage buildings, stunning parks, incredible restaurants and high street heaven.

Its universal appeal should not be overlooked when considering a place to rent in the capital.
