Part of the City of Westminster
The area around Westminster Abbey and Westminster Palace in the City of Westminster in central London.

If you look at a map of central London, the boundary of Westminster (ie the area of Westminster within the City of Westminster) runs from around Piccadilly Circus down past Admiralty Arch to the River Thames. It then follows the bank of the river east past Tate Britain before turning north past the fringe of Sloane Square to Hyde Park and then east to Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner and Piccadilly Circus.

Westminster refers to the 'West Minster' which is Westminster Abbey. Today, people tend to roll this area up into the larger City of Westminster which is one of London's 'boroughs'.
