Westminster Palace suffered a fire in 1834 and the Victorians decided to build a Parliament fit for the Empire. It took 30 years to complete. Parliament suffered a direct bomb hit during WWII and parts were repaired.
The current commonwealth houses of parliament were opened in 1988, the old parliament house was opened in 1927
