Dec 2018 it isn't even worth it to see it...it's not even recognizable since it's covered in scaffolding and drapery. Hopefully it will be ready for summer tourists...but if you're going now in hopes of seeing Big Ben, you'll be gravely disappointed!

Fantastic buildings in and around this area, unlucky for us on our visit January 2019, Big Ben covered up as under repairs and Parliament slightly covered. Good to see the bridge now has its pathways blocked off to cars so no one can be run...More

Whitehall and Westminster areas are always buzzing whenever we visit. It is the seat of UK Government and a frequent haunt for high profile politicians, businessmen and political commentators.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
