  • It was a day to remember!!! It's a must visit place! Historical , beautiful, interesting , intriguing, educational ... not possible to list all the feelings . We went on a school visit and all the kids loved it. They even got to see their local MP and grilled him with many questions. Make sure you visit the place before it's closed for a very long renovation. The house of Lords , the House of Commons...just go and admire the history and at the same time be part of tomorrow's history.
  • Truly stunning. Amazing to walk around the Commons and House of Lords. Brought to life by a great guide (Phil). One minor- no photography. Not sure what damage we could do...but highly recommended
