Though important in country politics, it is one of those places that is nice to walk by but you don’t get to see much. Everything is behind police gates. Worth seeing if in the area and grabbing a few pictures.

grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
