Palace of Westminster, London

The grand Palace of Westminster on the bank of the Thames is the Parliament of Britain where the House of Lords and House of Commons meet in session.

The grand Palace of Westminster on the bank of the Thames is the Parliament of Britain where the House of Lords and House of Commons meet in session. Designed by Charles Barry and Augustus Pugin in neo-Gothic style, it was completed in 1860 but the Commons chamber was destroyed by a bomb in 1941 and had to be redesigned by Giles Scott. The spectacular Westminster Hall, however, is a preserved part of the original Palace of Westminster from 1099 AD. During the summer recess, tours led by Parliamentary employees are run through the building.
