20171227 150121 Largejpg

The Two Chairmen is thought to be one of the oldest pub businesses in Westminster and is located in a small cul-de-sac between St James' Park and Parliament Square.

Lovely cosy pub just a few minutes walk from the QEII. A favourite with our IMPA regulars

The Westminster Arms 9 & 10 Storey's Gate, Westminster, London SW1P 3AT


The Westminster Arms is in the heart of political London, a stone's throw from the Houses of Parliament. It features a division bell so MPs can dash back to the House in time for the vote. As well as politicians and journalists, the pub is usually bustling with civil servants, tourists, conference delegates, actors and models

You cannot get any closer than this – right next door to the QEII. – Great for celebrity spotting!

Word of warning – No mobile phones to be used when at the main bar!!

The Sanctuary can be found Just round the corner from St James's Park Tube station on Tothill Street, which takes its name from Tothill Fields where, in rougher times, bull-baiting took place until the 1820.
