  • No doubt when you think of London, this majestic building, on which Big Ben, the world's most famous watch, is based on your mind, comes to mind. Known as The House of Parliament, it houses the 2 houses of Parliament. The original Palace was built in 1512, after the fire of 1834, the current Palace was built, as only part of the original building was saved.
