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..

This was beautiful. A must see when in London. We really enjoyed this and recommend you do this with a London Day Tour. You learn and see so much more.

Caroline was our guide and she was very professional and interesting. The buildings and halls are glorious with no expense spared and there is a lot of history in the buildings over centuries. The traditions of the houses are quaint and the background to them was well explained. The tour was due to last 90 minutes but ran over by about 15 minutes but we didn't feel the time passing. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful tour of both houses of parliament and saw the Royal Hall and robing room where the queen prepares for the opening of Parliament. Bucket list.

Amazing architecture and tons of history. I thought this would be a good visit, but it was great. Great views from inside and out.
