Facilities for Visitors

Both Houses of Parliament have acknowledged for some time that better facilities for visitors, including children of school age, to the Palace of Westminster are needed. During 2006, the Information Committee worked with a committee of the House of Commons on the issue of visitor facilities. The Committees recommended that a dedicated space for school visitors of approximately 1,000 square metres (consisting of flexible accommodation of five classrooms with ancillary space for storage, toilet facilities, a lunch area and locker space) should be sought either on or off the existing Estate-the exact space depending on what becomes available and at what cost.
