A morning in Parliament
I was incredibly fortunate to get to spent a morning inside the Palace of Westminster. It’s a place I’ve been past many times but going inside was a new adventure! What makes it so exciting is that it is still actively doing what it has been doing for centuries – the living seat of British Government. As a result security is incredibly tight (think airport) and photography is limited inside. What really struck me was the sheer size of the ancient medieval palace which is an integral part of the more familiar 19th century construction. Its a huge timber roofed hall and is quite incredible. I also particularly enjoyed seeing the recently renovated tiling in St Stephen’s Hall – which were made in Jackfield, Ironbridge where I was just last week! One World Heritage Site to another.
