"House of Parliament" Houses of Parliament - Palace of Westminster Tip by seamandrew

  Houses of Parliament and Big Ben
by seamandrew

This one is sort of self explanatory. This building serves to house the parliamentary body of England. It was constructed in a Victorian Gothic style (except for the medieval Westminster Hall). Westminster Hall is touted to be the "finest timber roofed building in Europe." It even survived a fire in 1834. It serves as a law court. You can see more pics in my travelogue.
