Architecture and Points of Interest

Built at the same time as Portcullis House above it, Westminster rests on several massive pillars surmounted by a thick concrete slab, upon which the Parliamentary offices sit.

The District Line is suspended from this slab, while two helix-like runs of escalators descend to the Jubilee Line, which, uniquely here for the extension to the line, is arranged not horizontally but vertically.

The Portcullis House site has a diagram of the station and the building and a plan of the ticket hall layout.
