When we were first invited to The Houses of Parliament, we knew we were in for a treat. Thanks to the kind hospitality of Brambles, our hosts for the day, we knew there would be a wonderful lunch with refreshments and a beautiful river view. We also knew we would get to meet up with many of our partners from the Crown Services Framework and have the opportunity to discuss the education sector and our varied experiences working and delivering I.T. solutions to universities, schools and academies.

What we hadn’t expected was that The Houses of Parliament building boasts the most beautiful interior. The detail in all the architecture is breathtaking and if that is not enough to impress, you literally feel like you are walking through a historical timeline with brass plaques marking the attendance of queens and leaders for generations, from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela. A very inspiring day and although we didn’t manage to locate the data centre there, we had plenty opportunities to soak up the location and views across the Thames, which co-incidentally provided us with a super view of our client Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital a place we visit often but usually see from inside the basement garage!
