Place To See


The Palace of Westminster, also known as the House of Parliament, is an iconic palace-like building on the Thames River that serves as the seat of the British House of Lords and the House of Commons. It is also where visitors can see one of London’s most recognizable cultural symbols, Big Ben.

Insider Tip

It’s possible to go inside, but public access hours vary depending on whether or not Parliament is in session (Note: overseas visitors cannot tour when Parliament is in session). Check the website to see what’s on before to avoid disappointment.
