    Great buildings, not least Westminster Abbey and Parliament; but poor urban design makes it not a great place to stop: heavy traffic; narrow pavements; hard to access central green area; few amenities

    Two traffic milestones occurred in this square. In 1868 the world’s first traffic lights were installed here (which later blew up) and in 1926, it became Britain’s first official roundabout.

    Formerly a warren of shops, slum dwellings and alleyways, and half a millennia before that an island. Cleared in the 19th century and on its way to what we know today.

    Architecture from the Elizabeth Tower, Palace of Westminster, Portcullis House, and more besides. A great place to people watch. Often busy with tourists.

    Considering that you're sat in the middle of the busiest roundabout, it's actually a lovely place for a picnic in a sunny day

    From behind the statue of Viscount Palmerston the camera tilts to see M's chauffeur-driven Jaguar XJ passing through Parliament Square after Bond's apparent death in Skyfall (2012) Read more

    A good stroll in area and u can see the guards. But don't be a tourist and harass them they deserve better

    The centre of elaborated political and ceremonial events but nowadays more of a challenge to navigate traffic and tourist

    Look out for a shifty looking welsh guy, he often cheats in foursquare here or in the treasury, but no one would let him into the treasury, he smells of leaks.

    A great spot to admire the architecture and scenic views of Big Ben and the houses of Parliament

    Impressive views of the houses of Parliament, Westminster abbey and Big Ben (Elizabeth tower). Usually some interesting protest camps.

    If you lose track of time there's Big Ben to help out, night or day:-)

    Now this place looks more like construction site, then nice lawn square it used to be. Bloody scamp protesters.

    The peace campaigners are peaceful, but the tourists can be difficult to navigate!

    A spectacular public square which is still a roundabout - thanks to Boris Johnson.
