Tours of the Houses of Parliament can be arranged on weekdays, or you can buy a ticket to sit in the public gallery when Parliament is in session – you may even spot a member of Parliament on his or her way to “the office”. For those more interested in the building than the politicians, its impressive façade is best viewed from Plein Street.
Other nearby places of interest are Greenmarket Square, the Castle of Good Hope and the V&A Waterfront.
