Description

Parliament Buildings, more commonly known as Stormont because of its location in the beautifully landscaped gardens of the Stormont Estate, is one of the best known and most striking pieces of architecture in Northern Ireland. The architect Sir Arnold Thornely, who was knighted by King George V in recognition of his architectural work, designed the building with perfect symmetry and symbolism, such as the building being 365ft wide representing one foot for every day of the year and having six floors and six pillars at the entrance, one for each county in Northern Ireland. This iconic building will provide the perfect backdrop to the conference dinner.
