A Grade II* listed building near Westminster Bridge, it used to be the headquarters of the London and Greater London Councils. Built of Portland stone in an Edwardian Baroque style its construction began in 1911 and it was opened by George V in 1922. After 1986 it ceased its council function and the building was sold – it now houses several businesses including the Sea Life London Aquarium and two hotels.

I love this building, had a good look at it when we did the London Eye last summer. It’s one of those real, old school grand places, isn’t it?
It really is a pretty building.
