1 August 2023 (updated on 1 August 2023)
Tickets are on sale for guided tours of the State Apartments in Speaker’s House, running from 25 September to 14 October.
As part of his mission to make the office of the Speaker more accessible, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons, will once again open Speaker’s House during the House of Commons’ Conference recess.
Visitors will be able to tour the State Apartments and see where the business of the Speaker is conducted daily. Highlights of the tour include ascending the Grand Staircase, seeing the magnificent wall hangings of the Crimson Drawing Room, and the State Dining Room with its set of life-size Speakers’ portraits. You’ll also see the State Bedroom, where historically the monarch was invited to sleep the night before their coronation.
Book tickets for the tour
Tickets for the 75 minute fully accessible tour cost £20 for adults and £12 for 16–24-year-olds. All profits will go to the Speaker’s Art Fund charity. The charity supports arts and educational projects with a focus on increasing understanding of Parliamentary democracy across the UK.
