Located in the heart of London, Pimlico’s brick townhouses and white stucco facades hug its well-planned streets. The bowed windows of its cafes and taverns look across genteel scenes—Anglican churches, private homes, and pristine gardens capture Pimlico’s envied restraint. Underrated and often overlooked, Pimlico augments its refined culture with casual conveniences like farmer’s markets, and easy access to high-class institutions like Millbank’s Tate Britain museum.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Quiet and Stylish Retreat In Central London
The close proximity to Victoria and to several bus routes makes getting around very simple, and there are many restaurants, pubs and shops very close by. Pimlico is a pleasant neighbourhood, very buzzy, and I felt perfectly safe coming home late by public transport."

Shops and Spots on Every Corner
This is a great neighbourhood, close to Battersea Park, see the Buddah, Rose garden and Pump House Gallery there. You will be close to the Tate Britain and Saatchi Galleries for culture and The Kings Road is a "stone's throw" for trendy shopping and the farmers' markets."
