Sixth form historians travelled to London to visit the Houses of Parliament as part of their study of Stuart Britain and to widen their historical understanding of Parliament. After a walk down Whitehall and past Downing Street we came to Parliament Square.
Fr Elliott and Mr Hennessy took turns to explain the importance of the various statues: Canning, Lincoln, Peel, Gandhi, Mandela, Lloyd-George, Palmerston, Disraeli, and Churchill.
We then went on to Westminster Hall and so round the Palace of Westminster with our guide.
The boys were fully engaged in the tour which introduced them to the history and traditions of the Houses of Parliament.
