We took part in one of the tours of the parliament buildings. The staff were fun and knowledgable. The buildings are stunning and we appreciated the historical information. Too bad you only get to tour four rooms. Still, well worth the time.

I wish I had went inside, but even just looking at this building from the outside was a treat. The Christmas lights really make it look perfect and give a great photo opportunity.

Hi, I doubt there is a storage location for your bags at the Parliament Building however your hotel will likely hold your bags for you if you arrive before you can check into your room.
