House of Lords London Reviews
Highlight of the year Jan 05, 2013
Now, how do I start?? :) so excited that I didn't just get to visit the outside of the house of lords n the house of commons but was invited to go tour inside by a baron! Woohoo... !! He was a friend of our tour guide so we had a chance to be guided inside the historical building! Went inside and security was tight but was told the history of the place. Went to the queen's robing room :) a place where apparently her majesty changes before a big event. Was also shown in many of the rooms full with the portraits of the late kings and queens. Saw debates/ discussions in both the house of lords and house of commons. We were also shown the hall where state funerals were held and after the tour, tea and scones with the baron himself.
Excellent visit though I suppose it can't be just done like a normal tour. But historical place that really affected me. Where bills and laws are passed. Where history is made :)
