The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Commonly known as the Houses of Parliament after its tenants, the Palace lies on the Middlesex bank of the River Thames in the City of Westminster, in central London. Its name, which derives from the neighbouring Westminster Abbey, may refer to either of two structures: the Old Palace, a medieval building complex that was destroyed by fire in 1834, and its replacement New Palace that stands today. For ceremonial purposes, the palace retains its original style and status as a royal residence.

GB Parliament


Alongside the "Capitol" in Washington, the Houses of Parliament – properly known as the "Palace of Westminster" – in the United Kingdom are the foremost inspiration for building parliaments in modern-day Europe – and beyond. The neo-Gothic building was designed by Charles Barry and Augustus Pugin after its predecessor was largely destroyed by fire.
