Political events in London

Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament should be at the top of every tourist’s itinerary, and don’t miss the famous front door at No.10 Downing Street – if you get lucky then you might even catch a quick glimpse of the Prime Minister. The historic medieval Guildhall and historic Mansion House are worth a look as well
