This is a list of people who have held the office of Mayor or Lord Mayor of the City of Westminster. The office of Mayor of Westminster was created in 1900 with the formation of the Metropolitan Borough of Westminster. The borough had the status of city.[1]

In 1965 the metropolitan borough was abolished and replaced with a larger London borough, the City of Westminster. In 1966 the office of Mayor was elevated to Lord Mayor.[2] [3]
