Houses Of Parliament2013
By Amelia Meyer
The Houses of Parliament remain a very important part of England’s political affairs and, indeed, those of the entire United Kingdom (which comprises England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). When the Parliament of the United Kingdom meets, it is done in either the House of Lords or the House of Commons, making up the official Houses of Parliament.
The opulent Westminster Palace (as the Houses are also known) is located in the heart of London, on the banks of the River Thames, creating a gorgeous spectacle for locals and visitors. It is also right next to Big Ben and close to Westminster Abbey.
