    I stumbled across the opportunity for this building on the way home from a recce at an alternate site....
    The location attracted me instantly....in terms of the vista I would be presented with.....a 'different' view in London...not just the usual shots of the City.
    How ienticing this location was....not long after entry, and as per usual, my first port of call was 'topside'.....up a delightful spiral staircase into the Tower...and bang....what a corking view !
    So much so I spent the next 45mins doing...absolutely nothing....other than watching the comings and goings at Parliament...and listening to the ever faithful sounds of Big Ben...every 15mins.
    Looking to the grounds below....Parliaments Police and Security had nothing better to do than gaze aimlessly around the square, right in front of me....so the thoughts I had of a jib climb on the site crane....were quickly discarded.

    After a wonderful time up top on a great night....Heading down the tower to the roof I notced a tiny portion of stained glass window 'poking' out from behind a chipboard cover....hello !!!
    A bit more climbing around the awesome gargoyles and intricate stonework....I saw the way in...to Court Room 3... :D
    What a beauty....
    Hmm..Court Room Three.....that means there must be at least another 2 !...and there was...:D
    Whilst the rest of the building is being completely gutted....the court rooms are being preserved ...thank goodness.
    Gargoyles , Angels and Knights watch over you from every corner...

    Wonderful stone and woodwork here...was great to see it all.

    Anyhow....to the pics !


    The Roof

    Great views of Big Ben and Parliament to the South.


    The Tower roof...a nice place to chill out..

    Intricate stonework on the roof level..
