The tour leaves the Hall of Honour and heads for the Senate, passing a series of portraits of Speakers of the Senate before coming to this large foyer area. A portrait of King George III can be seen in the background. The guide told us that some of the royal portraits here are paintings of paintings elsewhere, while others are commissioned originals.
A Christmas tree is here in the foyer at the moment.
Looking up, a view of the foyer ceiling catches the eye.
Here we have another portrait, Queen Victoria.
King Edward VII is nearby.
Followed by King George V.
On the other side of the foyer, portraits of Queen Elizabeth and King George VI have been removed in preparation for the upcoming move over to West Block.
The finer details, like these carvings, caught my eye.
Today I leave off with a close up of the Christmas tree.
