Backing tracks for our end of year show!
The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Commonly known as the Houses of Parliament after its occupants, it is also known as the 'heart of British politics'. The Palace lies on the northern bank of the River Thames in the City of Westminster, in central London.
Review of the visit by Ashwin Niranjan
On Thursday 29th September, Year Six went to the Houses of Parliament. The trip was extremely exciting, excluding the long coach journey! The Houses of Parliament were dazzling although smaller than I expected, they were beautiful. The first room we went to was called the Robing Room and this is where the Queen, who comes once a year, would change for her speech. The room was golden and glamorous- I had never seen such a richly decorated changing room! We walked through a beautiful corridor which the Queen would hardly glance at as she walked through. We were also lucky enough to go into the chambers of the House of Lords and House of Commons.
The boat trip was fantastic and we made a U-turn at the wonderful Tower Bridge. Overall it was a fantastic trip and experience and well worth it- even for the coach journey!
