Visit to Houses of Parliament

By kind invitation from The Rt Hon the Baroness of Northwold,  Gillian Shephard we had an exclusive tour of the Houses of Parliament.  We were met by Elizabeth Truss MP who was a wonderful hostess and listened with great interest to lots of ideas from the group in which the new government could help people running business.  We had drinks on Westminster Terrace with Elizabeth and the view of the Thames was extraordinary from the Terrace and the weather did not let us down.
In the afternoon the group went round the Jewel Tower which was built around 1365 to house Edward III’s treasures and is one of only two buildings from the medieval Palace of Westminster to survive the fire of 1834.
We then called in at the Heath Court Hotel in Newmarket for dinner on the return journey!
