The Houses of Parliament are some of the most important buildings in the UK. It is here where the main decisions are made on how to run the country – that includes everything from the environment to schools. It also has one of the most famous landmarks in the world – The Elizabeth Tower. Completed in 1858, it contains the famous bell – Big Ben!
It’s also home to Monty the Gargoyle!
He may be made of stone and look rather ugly, but Monty has been hanging around the Houses of Parliament since they were built. He knows everything you’d want to know about this place. Join Monty on Fun Kids from 9th November as he uses his magical abilities to explore Parliament, its history and the everyday lives of people who work within its walls.
