The Houses of Parliament is also a must-see during your stay in London. You can also see this during your ride on the London Eye, but it also must be admired on the inside. The amazing architectural design and the sheer magnificence of the rooms would make you appreciate London all the more. But the most famous part of this splendid architecture would be Big Ben.
