"Houses of Parliament" Houses of Parliament - Palace of Westminster Tip by Imbi


The Houses of Parliament, otherwise known as The Palace of Westminster, stands on the site where Edward the Confessor had the original palace built in the first half of the eleventh century. In 1547 the royal residence was moved to Whitehall Palace, but the Lords continued to meet at Westminster, while the commons met in St. Stephen?s Chapel. Ever since these early times, the Palace of Westminster has been home to the English Parliament.
