Parliament SquareLocated outside the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, Parliament Square occupies a politically significant position and has often been the focus of protest and controversy - Brian Haw's famous Iraq war vigil is a case in point. Statues of political heavyweights overlook the grassy square with George Canning, Benjamin Disraeli and Robert Peel standing proud along with Nelson Mandela and Abraham Lincoln. It also provides the finish for the annual New Year's Parade held on 1st January.
