Palace of Westminster and Big Ben
6 Pics: The Palace of Westminster hosts the UK Parliament’s House of Commons and House of Lords. Visitor Tours and Photography Restrictions inside, outside is not a problem.
Alongside is Westminster Abbey. Visiting Westminster Abbey, where photography is not allowed inside. Both are right outside Westminster Underground railway station. Nearby, one can take a variety of river tours.
The fine detail of the palace exterior is not often seen, so here are some pictures. 🙂
Absolutely beautiful series of photos.

Truly exceptional attention to detail. I cannot fathom the patience it would take to design, plan and build such a structure.

Quite so. I would suppose for those who commisioned it, there would be a lot of glory and patriotic zeal. But, I cannot help admire the dedications of the artisans for whom it must have been a more artistic zeal.
Good to see it though. It shows how much human beings can achieve, in anything, when we try.
Thanks for the comment. Spot on. 🙂

Wow – brilliant shots! Were you on the other side of the bank – or did you take these from a boat?

Hiya. It was from a tour boat that goes from Westminster to Hampton Court. I’ll be posting the journey and the palace in the next few days. 🙂

So excited, we are finally returning to London in 2015 after crossing the Atlantic once again and self driving through Kruger National Park again, we are then returning to London for some r & r after Africa for the first time in a long time. I want to tour some historic houses and maybe Windsor or something….both I have never done.
