On Friday 5 September 20 Octavia residents visited the Houses of Parliament in Westminster courtesy of Karen Buck MP. Residents and staff thoroughly enjoyed a guided tour of the various historical halls, taking in fascinating facts, artwork and stories charting the history of the monarchy and beyond.

A highlight from the tour was visiting the prestigious House of Lords and House of Commons.
