More about LiberTeas
June 2015 is 800 years since the sealing of Magna Carta in 1215, the document which laid the foundations for the rights and representation that we enjoy today.
To commemorate this historic occasion, citizens across the UK will be taking a moment to celebrate, debate and reflect on those rights we very often take for granted but for which people throughout history have campaigned to make happen or fought to preserve. LiberTeas events will take many forms - a picnic in the park, a Sunday lunch, a debate, a street party, an open day, a historical walk.
Visiting the Houses of Parliament
UK residents and overseas visitors are welcome to visit the Houses of Parliament, either to take one of the tours or to watch debates and committees.
