The City of Westminster
Westminster
(/ˈwɛstmɪnstər/ ( listen) or /ˈwɛsmɪnstər/) is an Inner London borough
London borough
which also holds city status. It occupies much of the central area of Greater London including most of the West End. It is to the west of and adjoining the ancient City of London, directly to the east of the Royal Borough of Kensington
Kensington
and Chelsea, and its southern boundary is the River Thames. The London borough
London borough
was created with the 1965 establishment of Greater London. Upon creation, it inherited the city status previously held by the smaller Metropolitan Borough of Westminster
Metropolitan Borough of Westminster
from 1900, which was first awarded to Westminster
Westminster
in 1540. Aside from a number of large parks and open spaces, the population density of the district is high. Many sites commonly associated with London
London
are in the borough, including St. James's
St. James's
Palace, Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, and 10 Downing Street. The borough is divided into a number of localities including the ancient political district of Westminster
Westminster
around the Palace of Westminster; the shopping areas around Oxford
Oxford
Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly
Piccadilly
and Bond Street; and the night time entertainment district of Soho. Much of the borough is residential, and in 2008 it was estimated to have a population of 236,000. The local authority is the Westminster
Westminster
City Council.

Coat of arms[edit]

Coat of arms of the City of Westminster
Westminster
at Westminster
Westminster
City Hall

Historic coat of arms of Westminster, in Old Bond Street

The current Westminster
Westminster
coat of arms were given to the city by an official grant on 2 September 1964.[2] Westminster
Westminster
had other arms before, which had a chief identical to the chief in the present arms. The symbols in the lower two thirds of the shield stand for former municipalities now merged with the city, Paddington
Paddington
and St. Marylebone. The original arms had a portcullis as the main charge, which now forms the crest.[2] History[edit] The origins of the City of Westminster
Westminster
pre-date the Norman Conquest
Norman Conquest
of England. In the mid-11th Century king Edward the Confessor
Edward the Confessor
began the construction of an abbey at Westminster, only the foundations of which survive today. Between the abbey and the river he built a palace, thereby guaranteeing that the seat of Government would be fixed at Westminster, and inevitably drawing power and wealth west out of the old City of London.[3] For centuries Westminster
Westminster
and the City of London
City of London
were geographically quite distinct. It was not until the sixteenth century that houses began to be built over the adjoining fields, eventually absorbing nearby villages such as Marylebone
Marylebone
and Kensington, and gradually creating the vast Greater London
Greater London
that exists today. Westminster briefly became a city (in the sense of the seat of a bishop) in 1540 when Henry VIII created the short-lived Diocese of Westminster. Following the dissolution of Westminster
Westminster
Abbey, a court of burgesses (the Westminster
Westminster
Court of Burgesses) was formed in 1585 to govern the Westminster
Westminster
area, previously under the Abbey's control. The City and Liberties of Westminster
Westminster
were further defined by Letters Patent
Letters Patent
in 1604, and the court of burgesses and liberty continued in existence until 1900, and the creation of the Metropolitan Borough of Westminster.[4][5] The present-day City of Westminster
Westminster
as an administrative entity with its present boundaries dates from 1965, when the City of Westminster was created from the former area of three metropolitan boroughs: St Marylebone, Paddington, and the smaller Metropolitan Borough of Westminster, which included Soho, Mayfair, St. James's, Strand, Westminster, Pimlico, Belgravia, and Hyde Park. This re-structuring took place under the London
London
Government Act 1963, which significantly reduced the number of local government districts in London, resulting in local authorities responsible for larger geographical areas and greater populations. The Westminster
Westminster
Metropolitan Borough was itself the result of an administrative amalgamation which took place in 1900. Sir John Hunt O.B.E was the First Town Clerk of the City of Westminster, 1900–1928. Prior to 1900, the area occupied by what would become the Metropolitan Borough of Westminster
Westminster
had been administered by five separate local bodies: the Vestry of St George Hanover Square, the Vestry of St Martin in the Fields, Strand District Board of Works, Westminster District Board of Works and the Vestry of Westminster
Westminster
St James. The boundaries of the City of Westminster
Westminster
today, as well as those of the other London
London
boroughs, have remained more or less unchanged since the Act of 1963. On 22 March 2017, a terrorist attack took place on Westminster
Westminster
Bridge, Bridge Street and Old Palace Yard, just outside the Palace of Westminster. Six people - four pedestrians, one police officer, and the attacker - died as a result of the incident. More than 50 people were injured. An investigation is ongoing by the Metropolitan Police.[6] Demographics[edit]
