Parliament square

Parliament Square

Parliament Square is a square at the northwest end of the Palace of Westminster in central,

 It features a large open green area in the centre with trees to its west, and it contains twelve statues of statesmen and other notable individuals,

As well as being one of London's main tourist attractions, it is also the place where many demonstrations and protests have been held,

 The square is overlooked by various official buildings: legislature to the east (in the Houses of Parliament), executive offices to the north (on Whitehall), the judiciary to the west (the Supreme Court), and the church to the south (with Westminster Abbey next to it),

 

It is worth taking a few minutes to look at some of the statues, notably Sir Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, and Nelson Mandela
