Free guided tours of Parliament are available to Islanders when booked through their MP. The walking tour of the Palace of Westminster includes -
- Westminster Hall, the ancient hall at the heart of the Palace where Parliament first sat and where many historic events have taken place
- The House of Commons, including the Speaker's Chair and the famous green benches and the 'lobbies' where MPs vote
- The House of Lords, including the Royal Throne
- The Queen's Robing Room, Royal Gallery and many other fascinating parts of the Palace of Westminster
Please note that tours are very popular and places are limited so have to be booked in advance.
Andrew has worked with Red Funnel and Southern Vectis to take 50 Islanders for a free tour of Westminster each year, with details published in the local press.
