Search for cheap hotels near Westminster Register Office
With a steadily increasing population of 7.3 million, accounting for 12.5% of the UK's citizens; births, marriages and deaths are a daily occurrence across the capital. To keep track of this waxing and waning community, the council records every person entering and leaving the city and helps people to complete their journey to become an official London citizen. Westminster Register Office, an austere, colonnaded building flanked with sphinx statues, located in the Marylebone district of London is the place where Londoners are recorded for posterity, throughout the best and worst days of their lives.
"2,000 babies are born per day in the UK"
The Westminster Register Office is part of Westminster Council and deals one on one with Londoners throughout the City of Westminster. The main services offered are birth and death registration. A staggering 2,000 babies are born per day in the UK, with many occurring in London, where most of the population is concentrated, and roughly the same amount of deaths occur in the UK per day, which shows that the population is on an even keel. This means that there are thousands of birth and death certificates to register each year and the council provides this service free of charge. With such an extensive record, which dates back centuries, the Register Office is also able to offer a comprehensive family tree building service; so if you suspect you are related to an obscure monarch or a great Briton such as Shakespeare, you can confirm or deny this by going through the Register's database.
"An oath is made to pledge Allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen"
The Register Office also helps to naturalise citizens, through the London citizenship test, and for those who are successful, the Register Office offer a Citizenship Ceremony, where family and friends can celebrate the Londoner's newfound status and an oath is made to pledge Allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen. This is also a great way for new citizens to introduce themselves to the local community.
"In recent years civil ceremonies have become more personal"
One of the Register Office's most pleasant tasks is joining Londoners in matrimony. When this service was first introduced, ceremonies were very simple affairs with few frills, but in recent years, as weddings have started to become much more lavish, the civil ceremonies on offer have become more personal and include extra services such as photographers and musicians. A range of central London venues such as art galleries, civil buildings and outdoor spaces are offered as an alternative to the Register Office too. A heart-warming sign of changing times is that Civil Partnerships between gay and lesbian couples are also offered now.
"Close to Madame Tussaud's waxwork museum"
If you are visiting a wedding at the Westminster Register Office, or if you are in the process of applying for citizenship, there are plenty of hotels in the surrounding area where you can stay. The Marylebone district is also home to sights such as Madame Tussaud's waxwork museum and the Sherlock Holmes Museum, so it is a great place to explore during your stay. The Georgian Hotel is close to Marble Arch and offers comfortable bedrooms and a complimentary breakfast. Hotel 82 London offers very reasonable rates and very stylish guest rooms, with tasteful, minimalist decor.
