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.

It was a day to remember!!! It's a must visit place! Historical , beautiful, interesting , intriguing, educational ... not possible to list all the feelings . We went on a school visit and all the kids loved it. They even got to see their local MP and grilled him with many questions. Make sure you visit the place before it's closed for a very long renovation. The house of Lords , the House of Commons...just go and admire the history and at the same time be part of tomorrow's history.
Truly stunning. Amazing to walk around the Commons and House of Lords. Brought to life by a great guide (Phil). One minor- no photography. Not sure what damage we could do...but highly recommended
