UK Parliament has re-opened its doors to the public for Covid secure tours of the landmark building.

From the 28 July – 4 September, visitors will be able to explore UK Parliament and its history in a 90-minute tour that includes the House of Commons and House of Lords chambers and the 900 year old Westminster Hall.
