If you are a resident of Rutland and Melton, I would love to welcome you on a tour of the Houses of Parliament (also known as the Palace of Westminster). The tour is full of fascinating information regarding the history of the buildings, how Parliament works and what it’s like to work there day-to-day.
The UK Parliament is the oldest Parliament in the world, and its first ever meeting was convened on the current Westminster site in 1265. The buildings you see today, however, were completed in 1870, following a fire which destroyed much of the old Palace complex. These 'new' buildings (especially the interiors) are some of the most fantastic in the world, and on the tour you will be able to view, (among other rooms), Westminster Hall, the Lords' Chamber, the Commons' Chamber, and the King's Robing Room.
My team and I will be happy to give you a guided tour of Parliament.
We can show up to six people around at one time and Fridays are the best day as Parliament often isn’t sitting so you can see the whole Palace.
The route is disability friendly with non-step access to all of the main areas of the Palace. If you’re a bigger group please email me to discuss what can be done.
Tour requests will be processed in date received order, so there may be a wait for your tour to be arranged.
I look forward to welcoming you to Parliament soon!
