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..

“Free. Worth every penny.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Security & welcome staff were brilliant. Fell victim to an (utterly terrible) prank by the police with their metal detector.

Amazing views inside and deffo well worth the visit.

Debate over tax headway reductions was quite dull except for the labour MP leading the debate struggling to get any response from the government bench.

Quite pleased though that all MPs, (including Mr. Reece-Smog) remained awake for the duration of our visit.

I've seen pictures of Parliament for years.But pictures do not do it justice. We only visited the outside of the building. I would like to plan a tour in the future.

We went for coffee in the cafe off the great hall, which was lovely, and then had a wander. Question Period was truly interesting.
