Houses Of Parliament venue photo

Also known as the Palace of Westminster, 1000 years ago the Houses Of Parliament were the official residence of the English royal family. The oldest part of the building is Westminster Hall which was completed in 1097 and has held a central role in British history since then. The majority of the original palace was destroyed by fire in 1834 and the magnificent Gothic-Revival building which now stands, majestically, in its place was designed by Sir Charles Barry and completed in 1870.

While the outside of the building is well known, guided tours allow visitors to discover the many treasures within the building, such as the spectacular fixtures and fittings designed by the exquisite craftsmanship of A.W.N. Pugin, including the wonderful throne in the Lords chamber, and a rich collection of works of art.
