Impressive gothic buildings! The place is currently under renovation and it is so difficult to take a clean shot of the buildings without the construction. The only place with the least construction is along Parliament Road which you can take the Peace Tower and Central...More

Parliament Hill houses the Canadian Parliament. Great part of the buildings are under renovation right now, but you can still do it the tour to the House of Commons and the Senate. We did House of Commons and it was great.

Parliment hill building is under renovation for next 10 years, so no entry there. West block and east block buildings need tickets to enter. Tickets are free.

No. They literally do not have doors that open in Center Block right now. No one can get in there. The real doors are now located in the West block building.
