Standing beside the River Thames, the Palace of Westminster is one of the most famous buildings in the UK.

The building as it is today was constructed between 1834 and 1864, replacing an earlier building which caught fire. It has 1100 rooms, 100 staircases and five kilometres of corridors.

It hosts the two houses of Parliament of the United Kingdom the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
