  • A beautiful wonderful place. A great place to visit and witness history in the making. Beautiful architecture in the Roman Gothic theme. A great place to watch The changing of the guard. A truly wonderful experience for the whole family. Don't forget to take a guided tour and check out the internal flame.
  • It was nice to see the Parliament, but unfortunately with all the construction on the hill wasn't able to do any tours
