Light Up St Stephen



Light Up St Stephen

The House of Commons in sitting, St Stephen's Tower lights up.

Location: House of Commons, SW1A 0AA

Description: The House of Commons is synonymous with England's political shenanigans and the way in which the country is governed.

So what better way to let all the London punters know that 'stuff is happening' amongst the Lords than to light up a tower.

And that is what is done - when the House of Commons is sitting, some kind chap turns on the light at the top of St Stephen's Tower.
