If your visit falls on a Saturday, or during the summer recess, you'll be able to take a guided tour of the building. The tours are comprehensive, starting in the Queen’s Robing Room, moving through chambers for debating and voting, and finishing in medieval Westminster Hall. Along the way, you'll encounter grandly appointed spaces and collect knowledge about British parliamentary procedure. UK residents can also tour Elizabeth Tower, but foreign visitors cannot. A visit to Houses of Parliament represents just the start of the adventure when you use our London trip planner to plot your vacation.
Houses of Parliament reviews
Really good building but really cold too good tour like to have seen it in real life good cafe and loos and shop more »
The heart of the British government, it is hard to believe that such a big building is needed for the houses of Parliament. The building is much more impressive than its occupants. more »
