“APH”

We just got the local bus, otherwise you have to pay for parking.
Free entry, but very security conscious.
The first day we did a "self guided tour."
Parliament had just resumed and were informed...

“An amazing place for all especially families to visit.”

A most impressive building from the Outside and even better Inside. Easy to find and a mile of underground parking with a short stroll/lift to the entrance.
Walking inside its got beautiful marble...

We should have booked a tour guide as this would have been helpful in understanding the history of the building.
Very impressive given the building is now 30 years old.
