The Houses of Parliament opens its doors and invites you to peer inside on a guided tour of how UK Parliament works now, and find out more of its history. During the 90-minute tour, you’ll get to step inside (though sitting is not permitted) the Commons Chamber, the Lords Chamber, walk past ornate frescoes and statues that have plenty of stories to tell from some of the most signficant moments in British politics.
You can only take photos in Westminster Hall, but other highlights include the Queen’s Robing Room, the Royal Gallery, Central Lobby, and St. Stephen’s Hall. Tours run on select Saturdays throughout the year and on some weekdays during recesses.
