Secrets of Westminster

 

The Houses of Parliament and the Tower of Big Ben are classic London emblems of historic British democracy. The Palace of Westminster, which includes the House of Commons and the House of Lords, stands as a monument to a fair and open political system, but within its gothic walls are the hidden worlds of Parliament, where back-stabbing, intrigue and traditions are the order of the day. Around the corner, Westminster Abbey is steeped in Anglo-Saxon myths, legends and history of over 3,000 great men and women buried or memorialized here throughout the ages.
