A Very British Symbol: Houses of Parliament   

Dive into the mother of all parliaments. Learn how Parliament evolved from a King’s council during the Anglo-Saxon period to the modern body that we know today. Do you know why the seats face each other instead of facing forward?  Did you know that a secret passage, dating from 1660, was uncovered just this year? Learn why a famous suffragette hid in a cupboard on the night of the 1911 Census, and why the House of Commons provides its members with free snuff.
