You might not know but..
It is a world heritage UNESCO site
This UNESCO World Heritage Site stands on a historic riverside location which links it with the origins of Parliament and the ancient palace of the Norman kings. First used by Canute as the site for a royal palace, it was Edward the Confessor who established the medieval building now known as the Old Palace of Westminster. Rebuilt and extended over the centuries, the most important structure, the 900 year old Westminster Hall, still stands today.
The principal function rooms on the upper floors of the New Palace of Westminster, including the Members’ and Strangers’ Dining Rooms and the Pugin Room, designed by Charles Barry in a generalised ecclesiastical style and Augustus Pugin, whose inventive genius for adapting gothic forms created the elaborate interiors. Individually, these spaces can host up to 170 guests for lunch or dinner and 200 guests for a reception or when combined the spaces will accommodate 300 standing guests.
The lower floor offers four smaller private dining rooms and the Churchill Room, so named as many of his paintings hang on its walls. These individual rooms can seat between 10 and 100 guests for lunch or dinner or 25 to 100 for standing receptions. Outside on the Commons Terrace is the Terrace Pavilion, a purpose built marquee, which can accommodate up to 200 guests for standing receptions and opens out onto the eastern river frontage of the Palace overlooking the River Thames.
