Houses of Parliament & Big Ben
Parliament is made up of two houses: the House of Commons and the House of Lords and both have their meeting chambers here. It is possible to take a tour of the building or watch a debate or question time. Once a year, usually around May, the Queen visits and from her throne in the House of Lords officially opens the new session of Parliament.
UK residents can also apply for a tour via their MP or a member of the House of Lords.
The best view of the Houses of Parliament is from across the river and the nearest Underground station is Westminster.
