"Houses Of Parliament" Houses of Parliament - Palace of Westminster Tip by martin_nl

  Statue on Victoria Tower Gardens & Victoria Tower
by martin_nl

The House of Commons and House of Lords are housed here in the Palace of Westminster. The House of Commons is where members of Parliament meet to propose and discuss new legislation. When Parliament is in session you have the opportunity to get inside and watch what they are doing from the House of Commons Visitor's Gallery. The queue's outside are usually very long, so be prepared to wait for at least an hour. However this is a free sight, so you might want to go in!

Address: Parliament Square, SW1
Directions: Right next to the Westminster Abbey. Take the metro to Westminster and tadaa there it is...
