About Inside Parliament

Our series about Parliament

The Houses of Parliament are some of the most important buildings in the UK.

It is here where the main decisions are made on how to run the country – that includes everything from the environment to schools.

It also has one of the most famous landmarks in the world – The Elizabeth Tower. It was completed in 1858 and contains the famous bell – Big Ben!

So here at Fun Kids we wanted to get inside to find out more, and luckily we found the perfect guide – Monty the Gargoyle!

He may be made of stone and look rather ugly, but Monty has been hanging around the Houses of Parliament since they were built.

Monty-1He knows everything you’d want to know about this place.

Join Monty as he uses his magical abilities to explore Parliament, its history and the everyday lives of people who work within its walls.
