Welcome to our New Website

The Heritage Collections Team are pleased to launch a new website dedicated to our collections; the Parliamentary Art Collection, the Historic Furniture and Decorative Arts Collection, and the Architectural Fabric Collection.

Explore the site to find dazzling images of thousands of our objects, in depth stories telling the history of Parliament, and online exhibitions showcasing curated selections from our collections.

Explore the Collections

Why not start with a virtual visit to New Dawn, our site specific light sculpture marking women’s suffrage. Or read about the fire which destroyed the old Palace of Westminster in 1834.

If you’re not sure where to start, you can try our ‘Surprise me!’ feature to receive a choice of three random objects from our collections.

Search the Collections

Our new Search the Collections feature allows you to search for and access details of thousands of our objects. You can search by keywords, filter your search, and sort your results. Find the search feature in the menu bar.

The object record page for each object provides high quality, zoomable images alongside details of the object.

As our website is new, we would welcome your feedback. Please email to tell us your ideas, or if you have noticed any problems so we can fix them.

Our website will continue to grow as we add more photographs, exhibitions, articles and news stories in future.

We hope you enjoy exploring the website, and all the treasures in our collections.
