  • Parliament Buildings dominate an extensive, publically accessible well kept estate. Used by dog walkers and ramblers, security is much in evidence close to main building.
  • The public tour was fantastic. Mickey was an excellent guide and very interactive with the whole group. The grounds are like a massive public park and very well kept. I enjoyed walking through the woods. The little one loved the playground.
  • Wonderful park, interesting tour of the building too
  • Brilliant make sure you go on a tour. Well worth your time.
  • Breathtaking building, inside and out. Take a guided-tour of the inside if you can; it's only about 40-45 minutes long and well worth your time.
