New Zealand Parliament Reviews
Theses impressive buildings are in the city area and are open for people to walk around and into. This is where the parliament actually meets. more »
An excellent guided tour with an informative guide, who points out the main architectural, historical and contemporary features of the buildings and a neutral political context along the way. more »
The buildings look really good and fascinating in person. Didn't get to go inside but should go visit. Also, it's free guided tour.
Beautiful historic buildings 🙌🏻 Well worth visiting. Most of these photos were taken with two tour bus loads of people wandering around, so even when busy you can get a clear shot.
