Parliament is open for family tours, audio tours and guided tours during the half-term holidays from 27 May to 4 June 2016. A 'Pop up Parliament' and other activities for children are also available on 'Family Friday', 3 June.
Choose the family audio tour and listen to time-travelling reporters describing events including the sealing of Magna Carta in 1215 and the discovery of the infamous Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
On 3 June 'Family Friday' our Visitor Assistants will be offering kids the unique opportunity to debate the issues that matter to them at the 'Pop up Parliament' in historic Westminster Hall. Questions which could be discussed include 'Are we paid too much pocket money?' and 'Why do we have to wear school uniform?'. These debates take place every half hour between 11am and 2.30pm.
Between 12 noon and 4pm, join in with more fun family activities. Kids will be inspired to think, design and create by making crowns, inventing their own political party or testing their knowledge with the Parliament picture quiz.
These family activities are open to tour ticketholders. Children must be accompanied by an adult. There is no additional charge or need to pre-book.
