Tours and activities for families in February 2016

Family tour in Central Lobby
09 February 2016

On a family tour of the Houses of Parliament, younger visitors can enjoy an audio commentary presented in the style of a 'live' news broadcast.

During this hour-long journey around the House of Lords, House of Commons and medieval Westminster Hall, time-travelling reporters report from the scene of many of the stories associated with Parliament including the sealing of Magna Carta in 1215 and the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.

Produced with children aged 7 to 12 in mind, the family audio tour is entertaining for young-at-heart adults too.

Family audio tours run throughout the day every Saturday.
