LiFE in Westminster
Updated on: Jan. 15, 2019, 12:41 p.m.
Whenever London is featured in foreign film, it tends to show Westminster, with the golden Houses of Parliament glistening in the Thames beneath —even if it is sometimes being destroyed by aliens. Westminster is also the site of the famous Beatles Abbey Road album cover, the place where Paddington Bear was found and where Joey Tribbiani met Sarah Ferguson at Westminster Abbey (‘That’s Fergie, baby!’). But it is also the locations featured off-screen that make it such an exciting place to live.
Night owls regularly swoop into Westminster. A must-see is the London Sky Bar, located in the Millbank Tower. Pinks and purples illuminate the room as DJs play the most exclusive tracks. With drinks aplenty and a view to add something extra special to the experience, you are guaranteed a great night. If that wasn’t enough, The Escape Games are situated in the same building. Race against the clock to solve clues and puzzles to escape creatively themed rooms—just don’t forget to get your picture at the end! Another favourite is The Cinnamon Club, a historic library turned Indian restaurant that has retained its charm. Exquisite cuisine amongst rows and rows of books? Well, Plato did say that, ‘Knowledge is the food of the soul’.
