  • Would serve them better if they would get back to work. If anyone else refused to go to work, they wouldn't get paid.
  • Parliament Buildings dominate an extensive, publically accessible well kept estate. Used by dog walkers and ramblers, security is much in evidence close to main building.
  • Nice historic place, yet still central in today's society
  • The public tour was fantastic. Mickey was an excellent guide and very interactive with the whole group. The grounds are like a massive public park and very well kept. I enjoyed walking through the woods. The little one loved the playground.
  • Wonderful park, interesting tour of the building too
