Houses of Parliament
About This Image
The Houses of Parliament, also known as the Palace of Westminster is the seat of Britain's two parliamentary houses, the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
Big Ben is one of Londons most famous landmarks. Originally called St Stephen's Tower, it was soon named after the tower's largest bell and strikes the hour. It is counterweighted with old pennies!
A light at the top of the tower is illuminated when Parliament is sitting at night.
I took this image from the South side of the River Thames.
