Explore the Houses of Parliament's medieval Westminster Hall

Westminster, Greater London

Explore 1,000 years of British history on a tour of the Houses of Parliament, from the Westminster Palace to the Commons Chamber.

The Houses of Parliament is one of the most iconic and important buildings in London, where political debates take place, laws are passed and history made.

During the summer (while parliament is in recess) and on Saturdays throughout the year, the Houses of Parliament opens up to the public for guided tours.

Led by expert Blue Badge Guides, the tour takes in famous sites including The Queen's Robing Room, the Royal Gallery, the Lords Chamber and the Commons Chamber, where members of parliament hold their lively debates.

Another highlight is Westminster Hall, which was begun in 907 and survived the catastrophic fire of 1834. It is also the location for many historic events, from the trials of King Charles I and Guy Fawkes to speeches by Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama.
