A world-famous icon of democracy

The Palace of Westminster is an icon of our nation’s past, present and future. It is the home of our democracy and a workplace for thousands of people. The building has played a unique role in our political history for 900 years and now it needs urgent repair

An extraordinary history

The Palace has a rich and remarkable history. Westminster Hall is over 900 years old and has been the scene of great moments in our country’s political life.

Urgent challenge

Today the Palace is falling apart faster than it can be repaired. The longer the essential work is left, the greater the risk of a catastrophic failure.

Nationwide benefits

Our project will protect the Palace’s historic legacy, create a more modern and accessible Parliament for everyone and support thousands of jobs all over the UK.
