Politics students overwhelmed by Westminster

Last Monday, Sixth Form Politics students embarked on an interesting day out to the Palace of Westminster to see the House of Commons and the House of Lords having discussed, debated and learnt of so many issues in class that are all heavily linked with the historical building. Standing in the same place as so many prominent figures of British history, and a place where so many significant decisions have been made was, without sounding over-the-top, somewhat overwhelming! We then visited the fascinating Churchill War Rooms Museum, which was again highly interesting as it was such a significant era in British history. The results of such an era being so major to the way our society functions today, made it even more of a necessary visit.
