Groups and travel trade

Group guided tour in Central Lobby

Visits to the Houses of Parliament booked by group travel organisers and through the travel trade are welcome.

Groups offering

Ticketed tours are available to groups from the UK and overseas on Saturdays throughout the year and on most weekdays during parliamentary recesses including Summer, Conference, Christmas and Easter.

The Houses of Parliament offer a range of audio, guided and occasional themed tours, some of which include the option to add afternoon tea.

For most tours, group rates are available for groups of 10 or more if booked in advance.

Regular audio and guided tours are offered in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Audio tours are also available in Mandarin, Russian and Brazilian Portuguese. Guided tours in over 25 languages can be arranged for groups on request, subject to the availability of a guide.

We are happy to receive special requests from group bookers looking to develop tour packages including dining, hospitality and Parliament-related gifts. Please note that such requests can only be considered for times when the Houses are not sitting.

New ticket availability

We aim to make new tickets available on the first working day of the month; early February for July tickets, early March for August tickets, and so on.

New ticket availability is announced on the Visit Parliament News pages.
