Secret Parliament doorway discovered

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"A forgotten passageway used by prime ministers and political luminaries - and closed up by Victorian labourers - has been uncovered in Parliament.

"Historians working on the renovation of the House of Commons found the lost 360-year-old passageway, hidden in a secret chamber.

"The doorway was created for the coronation of Charles II, in 1660, to allow guests access to a celebratory banquet in Westminster Hall, the building next to the modern day Commons chamber."

I've always wanted a home with secret passages and doors, false doors, hidden rooms, etc.
Oh well, maybe if I ever win the lottery, lol.
