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..

“Very interesting tour of a fascinating building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Even though I was not feeling a 100% this was still an enjoyable experience for me. The tour guide was very knowledgable and the building was stunning. You got taken round the house of lords and the house of commons and considering it was a 75 minute tour ,it was good value for money. There is a good shop with plenty political merchandise.

I went on a tour of the Parliament and found it very informative. The architecture is amazing and there was a real sense of history. Well worth a visit.
