Another Day in Parliament

The MPs may be on their summer hols, but that doesn’t mean the Palace of Westminster is quiet. The summer opening brings visitors from all around the globe.
This Saturday I shall be one of the Blue Badge Guides taking groups on guided tours of the building, following the Line of Route from the Victoria Tower through the Lords and the Commons and ending in Westminster Hall.
Parliament is an impressive building inside and out.
The Speaker has apartments in the clock tower. The current Speaker has a young family, and from Westminster Bridge you can just see a glimpse of the children’s playhouse in the garden.
