Houses of Parliament


Also known as the Palace of Westminster, it comprises the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Following a fire in 1834 which destroyed most of the old parliament, a competition was held for the design of the reconstruction. This was won by Sir Charles Barry, and the current buildings were erected between 1840 and 1870.

See also House of Commons.
