"Parliament on the Thames" Houses of Parliament - Palace of Westminster Tip by mrclay2000

  Parliament building, London
by mrclay2000

Easily one of the most impressive buildings in London is the Parliament building in Westminster. This enormous 1,100-room structure dates from the 1800s after the earlier building burned down (an event captured by the great painter J.M.W. Turner). Next to the building is London's most recognized icon, Big Ben.
