The Houses of Parliament are housed in the Westminster Hall which has a history of being the seat of the ruling government in London, a tradition started by King Edward. Besides being the setting for important decision-making, this palace is also incredibly beautiful.
The interiors are intricately decorated with classical drapes, carpets and chandeliers. The glass work on the windows is also very pretty. After a devastating fire the whole palace had to be revamped in the 19th Century so the work is somewhat newer but still has an old-worldly charm to it.
At certain times visitors are allowed to enter and observe the running of the legislative body. For a taste of history, political flair and current affairs, the houses are a must see spot.

Visited with the local youth council during the Easter holidays. It was very easy to get to the building, but finding the entrance wasn't the clearest, although this is understandable, as it is a very high security building. Once inside, it was very easy to work out where we needed to be. All the tours seemed to be running on time, so our tour started at the time that we expected. A very efficient process. We were shown around and told about the history of the building by our tour guide, Peter Clark. He was very knowledgeable about the building and British politics. Any questions that were asked, he knew the answer to. He also had a great sense of humour and appeared to be great with the younger children. Overall, it was an amazing visit and I would suggest it to anyone who is able to gain entry. The best way is contacting your local MP, who may be able to give you tickets free of charge.
Went here a few years ago, a sombrely vile day. Threw up , got lost , got yelled at for taking a single photo with a blackberry yet several other people were taking photos as if it was some sort of crime scene , my pen exploded in my pocket , almost passed out and to top it off the most notable individual we saw at the time was none other than the then Home Secretary Teresa may. Vile.
I really enjoyed going here, I went on a tour of the building, the tour guides are very helpful but I'll recommend going whilst the politicians are not in recess because it's a lot more entertaining!
I was impressed by the tour. Wonderful to be able to see the history. Step through the House of Commons and House of Lords. Can reserve a table for tea afterwards too.
A stunning building that never ceases to impress. The tour is highly recommended.
