This is great place you must see and you can get better photos taken if you go on a tour bus as it takes you the full 360' degrees

The House of Lords, House of Commons and Big Ben are such iconic buildings to the history of England. Having a guided tour and learning so much about what has taken place in this Palace of Westminster is a must for anyone interested in British history.
