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.

We visited in August, on a rainy day, and the central building was being renovated, so we were unable to go into it. Beautiful buildings, we thought very British. We listened to the bells for a while - it was playing tubular bells amongst the...More

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.
