Where Strangers become friends

The Strangers’ Room is a meeting place where members of Parliament greet visiting dignitaries including consuls’ generals and members of the Royal family. Historically, these guests were referred to as ’strangers’, thus creating the saying ‘where strangers become friends’.

Today, Parliament House invite you and guests to continue this tradition.

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t met”. William Butler Yeat – Poet
