As home to the longest established parlaiment on the planet this is historically a big hitter. Being British I have heard Westminster described as the mother of all parlaiments and held up as something of an historical model for others - when in fact the accolade belongs here.
As imposing as the history is the building housing the institution is unimposing. Pretty - indeed but unless you knew what it was or you werew making a special effort to find it you would hardly notice it. So its worth the effort to see this for the history - but don't expect to be blown away by the building or experience a "wow factor".More
