Trafalgar Sq to Westminster

I have been having a difficult time piecing together all the maps of London neighborhoods to get a good idea of distance. We are staying at the Thistle Trafalgar and it appears that maybe Westminster is a short walk? Is this true?

Well Trafalgar Square is within the City of Westminster. If (I'm guessing here) you're referring to the Palace of Wesminster (Parliament), then it is indeed a short walk (and a wonderful one) right down Whitehall, past Downing Street and numerous landmarks, to the river.

The Thistle Trafalgar is in the City of Westminster.

It's 10 - 15 minutes, to Traf Square, across it, then down Whitehall to Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster.

The best way IMHO to get an idea of this is to go to www.mutimap.com and input your hotel's postcode. Zoom in and out to get a sense of relativity, and opt for the "bigger map" option.

The scale is always pretty clear, though of course the maths of the scale can only be done from a hard-copy print.

I've been using www.mappy.fr to get pedestrian walking itineraries in Paris, and I think that the site also works for London.

Flanneruk suggests a good website but I think he misspelt it. You need www.multimap.com (i.e. with an "l").

Just thought I'd mention is in case you hadn't worked it out.
