One thing you should do when visiting the houses of Parliament is going up the Peace Tower.

The best time for a visit is during the weekend or at days the parliament is not in session.
A visit starts with a security check, so be in time (9AM-4.20PM).

All Parliament tours and programs are FREE of charge.

The Peace Tower has a unique elevator, not going up straight but slightly angled!
On the way up you pass the bells and the clock of the tower.

Once above the view is just great!
