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. Also, visit nearby attractions in the city which are covered in London itinerary 5 days.
