Editorial Reviews

A great choice for travelers who want to brush up on these iconic buildings before or during a trip. Performer Abbey Holmes' voice is honeyed and warm as she describes the Palace of Westminster (the official name for the Houses of Parliament) and the astonishing events that have taken place there, from the trial and beheading of Charles I to the great fire of 1834 and the rebuilding that followed. Listeners also learn about the construction and styles of the buildings themselves, including the famed Big Ben.
