Overview

Originally designed as a treasury for King Edward III, this sturdy building now serves as a museum showcasing the rich history of the British Parliament. The original structure has remained relatively unmodified since its construction in the 14th Century, and is in itself an excellent example of the period architecture. It is also of historical interest because of its status as one of the few remaining structures of the famed Palace of Westminster. Stop by on a tour of the present British Parliament buildings for a glimpse back into the establishment's past. Call for hours.
