Palace of Westminster – London

The Palace of Westminster, more commonly known as the Houses of Parliament, is probably the most famous building in England. It houses both houses of Parliament and Victoria Tower (11, 12), and Big Ben, which make it easily recognizable. The palace was built in the 11th century and was historically the residence of the Kings of England. Now it is part of the famous walk along the Thames and is crowded with tourists. It also stands adjacent to the London Eye (2, 5).
