Free guided tours of Parliament by experienced guides are available to constituents. The walking tour of the Palace of Westminster includes -
- Westminster Hall, the ancient hall at the heart of the Palace where Parliament first sat and where many historic events have taken place
- The House of Commons, including the Speaker's Chair and the famous green benches and the 'lobbies' where MPs actually vote
- The House of Lords, including the Royal Throne
- The Queen's Robing Room, Royal Gallery and many other fascinating parts of the Palace of Westminster
Please note that tours are very popular and places are limited so generally have to be booked about six months in advance.
Tickets to the House of Commons gallery are also available for members of the public, and if you plan to come for a tour, you may also wish to think about sitting in on the Commons or Lords. If you are interested in going to Prime Minister's Question Time on a Wednesday, please note that each MP is allocated around 3 pairs per year, on an alphabetical rota.
If you would like to know when the next availability is, to book gallery tickets for another day, or have an interest in a tour, please contact the Westminster office and we will do everything we can to organise your visit.
