Palace of Westminster
The Palace of Westminster covers 8 acres with more than 1,000 rooms and 3km (2 mi) of corridors. There are two Houses, Lords and Commons. The House of Lords has been downsized and reformed by Tony Blair's Labour government. The House of Commons is made up of 659 elected Members of Parliament. No monarch has been allowed into the House of Commons since 1642, when Charles I tried to have 5 Members of Parliament arrested.
