The Houses of Parliament is home to the House of Commons and the House of Lords. It has 1100 rooms and one of the most spectacular medieval timber roofs in the world. Some sessions are open to the public to watch from the Visitor's Gallery (Mon-Wed 2:30-end, Thurs 11:30 on) to which entrance is free.
Buckingham Palce
Built in 1705, Buckingham Palace became the London home of the sovereign in 1837, with Queen Victoria. You can tell if Her Majesty is at home because the royal standard replaces the Union Flag when she is in residence.

The Royal Mews, home to the collection of royal state carriages, can be accessed through an entrance to the left of the palace.

Inside the bridge The Tower Bridge Experience attraction takes you on a tour that shows you how the bridge was constructed, and provides some wonderful views of the river.
