Attraction Information

The Houses of Parliament have created an audio tour especially for families with children! The commentary is delivered in the style of a 'live' news broadcast and time travelling reporters are called upon throughout the tour to report from the scene on many of the stories associated with this historic building.

The standard audio tours and guided tours include the route taken by the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament; from the Queen's Robing Room, through the Royal Gallery and Prince's Chamber, into the majestic Lords' Chamber. Tours then move on through Central Lobby, Member's Lobby and one of the voting lobbies before entering the Commons Chamber, scene of many lively debates.

Passing through St Stephen's Hall, the tours end in 900 year old Westminster Hall. This is where Guy Fawkes and King Charles I were tried and where Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama addressed Parliament in more recent years.

The audio tours are recommended for families. The guided tours are not really suitable for younger children due to the length of the tours (90 minutes) and the amount of walking involved.
