Houses of Parliament
August 31, 2022
Guided tour and free time in London
1000 years of history, modern day politics, stunning art and architecture.
Follow in the footsteps of the Monarch at the State Opening of Parliament as they pass through the Robbing Room and Royal Gallery to take their seat on the gilded throne in the stunning Lords Chamber.
Enter the intriguing rooms of the House of Commons before standing in the famous Chamber itself, home to the Speaker’s Chair, the green benches and some lively political debates.
Led by the Houses of Parliament’s own expert guides, the fun and informative 90-minute tour explores the magnificent rooms within this most historic building. Tours end in the medieval Westminster Hall, the place where Guy Fawkes and King Charles I were found guilty of treason, Nelson Mandela famously addressed both Houses of Parliament and the late Queen Elizabeth II lay in state.
Either once our tour is complete, or indeed before it starts, you should find time to visit the Jubilee Cafe and Shop, located just off Westminster Hall.
Once our time at the Houses of Parliament is up we will re-board our coach for a transfer to the Strand where we will have a couple of hours free time to enjoy the surrounding area and perhaps grab a bite to eat. The Strand is just a short stroll from Covent Garden where of course there are many things to see and plenty of options when it comes to food and drink. Having spent the afternoon enjoying the sights, we will leave for home at around 5.00pm. We anticipate being back in Dorking at about 6.30-7.00pm, traffic depending.
