The UK Parliament looks forward to welcoming, engaging and inspiring visitors during the summer recess with tours running Monday to Saturday between 26 July and 1 September 2018.

Visitors will discover more about the current work of the UK Parliament and the 1,000 year history of the building.

A choice of guided tours, self-guided audio tours and family tours are offered, all of which include the Commons Chamber, Lords Chamber and medieval Westminster Hall.

This summer, visitors also have the opportunity to see the ground-breaking Voice & Vote: Women's Place in Parliament free exhibition in Westminster Hall.

Featuring both interactive and historic exhibits, ‘Voice & Vote' highlights the campaign for votes for women and the representation of women in the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

On most days*, visitors can combine the exhibition with a tour of the Houses of Parliament.
