A magificent building on the banks of the River Thames. If you have the opportunity then see the building from the river. It gives a different perspective. Wait a while and listen to the bells of "Big Ben" chime

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
