This was apparently a must see, but unfortunately it's been under construction for quite a while now. On a board it says that the building should be ready by november 2018. Now you cannot see much more than that it probably is/will be a nice...More

It is currently under repairs and therefore, cannot be visited. However, from the outside, visitors can see the extensive repairs being done.

This old Parliament Building is very RED but it's also very SAD. The whole thing is covered to try to protect it from falling down completely. The new Parliament Building is quite an impressive skyscraper at the Port.

Such a beautiful building ! What history ! And what it represented ! Maybe it's more than 300 hundred years old but when it is restored to its true beauty will certainly be a beautiful place to visit and be proud of .

Located on one side of Woodford Square. It was the original parliament. It has been under renovation for a few years. It still is, with fences and roof covers still in place. Lack of funds is apparently a problem. There was no way to go...More

Although the restoration was supposed to be done in Jan '16 in Oct '16 the building was still covered in scaffolding. It's probably worth a visit once that is done though so check!
