Presented by Annie Kemkaran-Smith, FRSA

The London skyline would not be complete without the Neo-Gothic Palace of Westminster, the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Join Curatorial Consultant Annie Kemkaran-Smith as she explores the past, present, and future of the iconic Houses of Parliament: the origins of The Palace and the beginnings of Parliament in England and later the UK; the architectural development and historical figures that shaped the current Houses of Parliament; and the planned Restoration and Renewal program for the next 50 years.
