Throwback Thursday: A tour through the Houses of Parliament

Due to popular demand: the Big Ben Selfie! Taken after my own personal tour through the Houses of Parliament

There hasn’t been a Throwback Thursday in a while but I have the week off my rent-paying job and so I’ve been up to my ears in writing blogposts (read: yay!!).

This photo was taken at the end of July after a long festival weekend in London. I had met up with a friend who works at the Houses of Parliament and he gave me my own personal tour through the building. I had seen it so often on TV but seeing it in real life and without the obligatory history lesson was quite something. My friend still gave me a bit of a history lesson but with a Scottish twist to it.
