About the Adventurer’s Tour Please note that this visit is available to UK schools only.
KS2 History, English
Explore the Palace of Westminster to find out how UK democracy has been shaped over time. Students will be set a secret mission to answer questions about how it all began, how issues in Parliament are debated and how the public can get their voices’ heard.
Note: This mission is secret, so please tell your class as little as possible - all will be revealed on the day!
NB: Parliament is a working building and access to different parts of the Palace of Westminster, as part of your tour, will vary due to Parliamentary business.
Your visit might include:
Norman Porch, the Robing Room and/or The Royal Gallery
The House of Commons and/or House of Lords chambers
Central Lobby, at the ‘heart’ of the Houses of Parliament
St. Stephen’s Hall, the home of the original House of Commons
Westminster Hall, the last remaining part of the original Palace
Once booked we will notify your school's constituency MP that you are coming to Parliament but we do not arrange any meeting for this particular programme. Please note that during the Dissolution and General Election period in April and early May 2015, there will be no MPs in Parliament, so we will be unable to notify them of your visit if it falls during this time.
