Tours of the Houses of Parliament

‘A Walk Through History’

Guided tours of the Houses of Parliament offer a unique combination of one thousand years of history, modern day politics, and stunning art and architecture. Tours may be offered alongside an Event, dependant on the time of year and capacity.

The Central Tours Office (CTO) will provide guides for groups of 20 pax for a fee. They are also able to advise you as to which areas are available on any given day or date.

Speak to our banqueting and events co-ordinators for further information and prices.
