Inside one of the world’s most famous buildings, tours of the Houses of Parliament offer a unique combination of 1,000 years of history, modern day politics and stunning art and architecture.

Audio and guided tours include the route taken by the Queen at State Opening of Parliament; from the Queen’s Robing Room, through the Royal Gallery and into the majestic Lords Chamber.

Tours then move on through Central Lobby, Members Lobby and one of the voting lobbies before entering the Commons Chamber, scene of many lively debates.

Passing through St Stephen’s Hall, tours end in 900-year-old Westminster Hall where Guy Fawkes was tried and where Nelson Mandela addressed Parliament in more recent years.

Regular tours are available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin, Brazilian Portuguese and Welsh .
