Owner description: Most of this iconic building was built in the mid-19th century following a devastating fire in 1834. Westminster Hall survived the fire and dates from 1097. Visitors can book tours through the House of Commons and the House of Lords, and are welcome to watch debates and committees when the Houses are sitting.

“See it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The tours are good. If unavailable, have a seat in the gallery and watch democracy in action, then go through to the lords. Amazing building, history at it's best. Well worth a visit. You can arrange to meet your M.P. if you're that much of a masochist!

“What a building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

When you first see it, you think the building is part of royalty. It's just a very impressive building which is right in London.

“Houses of Parliament interesting history tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Great history and access to somewhere you wouldn't likely be allowed to go. House of Lords and House of Commons just like you see on TV. Great guide, who had lots of stories to complement the history.
