Reasons for trip

We took the 90 min guided tour and thought it was absolutely brilliant. Our tour started at the Queens staircase and followed the route that the queen would take for the State opening of Parliament. We stopped at numerous rooms and places of interest throughout the building, with our guide providing a highly entertaining and interesting talk drawing on his knowledge of the building, its function, its place in history, plus many useful and amusing anecdotes. The tour includes the commons chamber and the Lords chamber, plus Westminster Hall. There are a fabulous number of sculptures, paintings, artefacts and decorations to be viewed and having had this wonderful introduction, I’d like to do the tour again but with the self-guided audio tour so I could linger over points of interest.

The tour runs on Saturdays throughout the year and on most weekdays when Parliament is not in session. The tour costs £22 for age 60 and over, there is an option to add on afternoon tea or just use the cafe on site.

For our tour there was a fair amount of walking involved and a number of steps to be navigated, so customers with mobility issues should check to see if their needs can be catered for on this tour. There web site states that “all tours are accessible for wheelchair users” so presumably alternative routes are available,

Would wholeheartedly recommend this interesting and absorbing tour.
