Westminster Palace in London is a magnificent example of Gothic revival architecture. It houses the parliament of the United Kingdom and is thus also known as the Houses of Parliament. In 1834, a fire destroyed most of the Palace, only sparing Westminster Hall. The building as we see it today is the result of a rebuilding process spanning many years. The needle-like spires covering the roof of the Palace nowadays were designed by the architect Charles Barry, whose most distinctive mark on the Houses of Parliament remains the bell tower housing Big Ben.

The Houses of Parliament is also known as the Palace of Westminster. It connects with Big Ben like siamese twins. It is undoubtedly the most luxurious landscape beside the Thames. The House of Lords is sumptuous, but remains inferior to the disparagement of House of Commons. I can recall that the Prime Minister Cameron scoffed at the Labour Party and tried to let it down many times in this house.
There are a lot words we can use to describe feelings but Often they never portray how you truly feel. We believe photography can sometimes speaks louder then words can.
