Explore Parliament offers a virtual tour of the esteemed halls of British government. And unlike real tours of the Houses of Parliament, this tour affords you opportunities to stop and “touch” things that interest you: move your mouse over a bust, sculpture, or painting to identify it, and click for narration or a movie. You can take the whole tour, or click on hot spots on a map to go to your favorite rooms.
Narrated segments cover everything from the art on the walls to the ceilings overhead. The CD also has information on parliamentary proceedings. And related artifacts are linked together, so if you stop to enjoy a bust of King Henry VIII, for example, you see links to items such as portraits of Anne Boleyn.
