Back The Houses of Parliament
The government runs the UK from the Houses of Parliament. Led by the Prime Minister, this group of people regularly meet up to talk about and set the laws (rules) for the country.

Most of the building was designed by Sir Charles Barry and was completed in 1870. There are over 1,000 rooms and two miles of corridors inside.

At the top of St Stephen's Clock Tower is the famous Big Ben bell that rings at the start of each hour.
