Houses of Parliament

About

Audio and guided tours include the route taken by the Queen at State Opening of Parliament; from the Queen’s Robing Room, through the Royal Gallery and into the majestic Lords Chamber.

Tours then move on through Central Lobby, Members Lobby and one of the voting lobbies before entering the Commons Chamber, scene of many lively debates.

Passing through St Stephen’s Hall, tours end in 900 year old Westminster Hall where Guy Fawkes was tried and where Nelson Mandela addressed Parliament in more recent years.

Tours are available English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Mandarin.

One of the best tours you can have...Even if the tickets seem a bit expensive, it definitely worth it. You are given an audio guide (free of charge) that provides you all the useful information about the history of this impressive building. You will have the chance to wander around the parliament's halls (House of Lords and House of Commons) and see the place where all decisions for country's...more

Very educational self guided tour (there is a separate guide for children ages 7-12) with so much to see and to be in awe of. The building is gorgeous, inside walls were ornate with intricate details, amazing works of art all around from floor to ceiling.

If you're in London, a visit to the Houses of Parliament really needs to happen. The official name for the gorgeous building is the Palace of Westminster, but a lot of folks call it the Houses of Parliament since it's the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords (and yes, I'm quoting Wikipedia a little here to make sure I get the terms right).

Parliament is actually open...more

I came here to go and watch a debate at the House of Commons and as I made my ways to the gallery, that feeling of being enveloped by authentic history was overwhelming. The indoor architecture very much transports you through time and is worth a visit.

The debate itself was not only free and insightful, but thoroughly entertaining - think Jerry Springer meets Downton Abbey - as the...more
