The Lords' Chamber

The House of Lords originally met in the Queen’s Chamber, a modest medieval hall in the old Palace of Westminster. In 1801, the House of Lords moved into the larger White Chamber, originally a dining hall, and then the location for the Court of Requests. Since they were occupied by the House of Lords, both the Queen’s chamber and the White Chamber came to be known as the Lords’ Chamber. The White Chamber remained the Lords’ meeting place until it was gutted by fire in 1834.
