Had no time to explore the inside, but the exterior has a grandeur that is impressive. It’s very much a colonial style building. Interesting to see it right next to the Tuynhuys, where FW de Klerk declared the ending of apartheid and he and Nelson Mandela planned the future of S Africa after apartheid.

We only walked around the building and it’s worth walking around it. Many vendors around the area. Some trying to sell you something you don’t need or want. Maybe willing try to get inside on a cloudy day.

Visiting is easy. Go to Public Relations on Plein St. Very helpful staff will arrange papers. Bring your passport. The National Assembly is where the party politics explode. Fiery speeches and partisan jeering at it's best. Thinking about how apartheid was "legitamized" here is spooky. The National Council of Provinces is much tamer but beautiful building. Long live democracy everwhere!

The parliament building is well preserved from it’s colonial days and is a unique building. The statue of Mandela stands out. Worth considering to visit the building complex when in Cape Town.

The parliament building is definitely a beautiful piece of architecture but in general a wonderful place to take a stroll around the entire area. The building actually consists of three sections: the original building and additions later constructed in the 1920s and 1980s. It’s well maintained and the grounds are beautiful as well.
