Edinburgh World Heritage - Parliament Hall

Parliament Hall

Parliament SquareBuilt in 1632 to house the Scottish Parliament and the Court of Sessions, the country’s supreme court.

Although most of the original building has now gone, the hall still exists and is open to the public. The scene you can see inside has not changed for hundreds of years, as advocates pace up and down discussing their cases.
