Big Ben and The Palace of Westminster - London

Our first postcard... a 'multi-media' souvenir postcard showing Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster (the Houses of Parliament) in London very kindly sent in by Penny... many thanks to you Penny!

Palace of Westminster - Information from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The Palace of Westminster, also known as the Houses of Parliament or Westminster Palace, in London, is where the two Houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (the House of Lords and the House of Commons) meet. The palace lies on the north bank of the River Thames in the London borough of the City of Westminster, close to the government buildings of Whitehall.

The palace contains around 1,100 rooms, 100 staircases and 4.8 kilometres (3 mi) of corridors. Although the building mainly dates from the 19th century, remaining elements of the original historic buildings include Westminster Hall, used today for major public ceremonial events such as lyings in state, and the Jewel Tower.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Your comments are always welcome. When making a comment, please try and be fair, balanced, honest and try and refrain from abuse... but most of all DO NOT SPAM!

Oh and one other thing... I hate 'Anonymous' comments. If you wish to post anonymously, I would suggest you use the 'Name/URL' option... just omit the URL bit (it is optional and only for use if you have a blog or website that you want to link back to). Use a fictitious name; e.g. 'Angry in Ashford', 'Perriguito de los Palotes' or whatever! Anything is better than 'Anonymous'... and will save confusion!

All this being equal, I shall be happy to publish your comment... thanks!
