The Parliamentary Estate is the land and buildings used by the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

The most notable part of the Parliamentary Estate is the Palace of Westminster, where the chambers of both houses of Parliament (the Commons and the Lords) are located.[1]

The Parliamentary Estate also includes Parliament Street, the Norman Shaw Buildings (which contain office space for members of Parliament and their staff), the House of Commons Library, the official residences of several parliamentary officers and Portcullis House (an office building for MPs and staff, opened February 2001.)[1] and since 2018 Richmond House and Richmond Terrace (formerly Dept of Health).
