Visit Westminster

The House of Commons and Palace and Westminster are public buildings, accessible to all to visit. You can fill in the form below to request a tour.

Tours of the Palace of Westminster take in the historic heart of our parliamentary democracy. Depending on when you are available to visit, you will be guided around the gothic splendour of the House of Lords and the Royal Apartments, the austere political hub of the House of Commons, and the incredible sights of Westminster Hall, St Stephen's Hall and Central Lobby.

You can experience the drama and excitement of debates in the House of Commons by requesting tickets for the Public Gallery. Watch as the Prime Minister is grilled by MPs, or see a debate on new legislation.

Please note that all requests are treated in order of receipt and we cannot guarantee we will be able to secure your chosen dates, though we will do our very best. Visits should be booked at least six months in advance.

If you have any questions about tours please contact Jack's Westminster Office.

You can find out when the House is sitting here.

Due to essential conservation works, the Elizabeth Tower will be closed for tours from 2017. Tours for this year are now fully booked.
