Request

  1. The number of Audio tours of the Houses of Parliament sold per month from January 2010 to December 2015 (or, otherwise, the latest month available) for each ticket category (Adults, Concessions, Children 5-15 years, Children under 5 and Disabled visitors)

Response

The House of Commons does not hold any information about audio tours for the period January 2010 to February 2014 because these tours have only been offered to the public since March 2014.

  1. The number of Audio tours of the Houses of Parliament sold per month from January 2010 to December 2015 (or, otherwise, the latest month available) for each ticket category (Adults, Concessions, Children 5-15 years, Children under 5 and Disabled visitors).
    Since a change in ticketing provider, the House of Commons holds information about the number of Audio Tours (CSV CSV 1 KB) broken down into the categories requested for the period November 2014 to December 2015.
    Prior to November 2014, this breakdown is not held by the House of Commons.  However, to be helpful we have provided the total number of tickets sold per month for the period March 2014 to October 2014, and this information is also included in the table for your convenience. 
    Please note:
    • Child tickets are split into categories ‘Free Children’ and ‘Paid Children’ rather than ‘Children under 5’ and ‘Children 5-15’.
    • Disabled visitors are not separated from other visitor by ticket type. However they can bring an escort free of charge, if required, so the category listed is ‘Disabled Visitor Escort’.
    Further information about current individual prices can be found on the parliamentary website.         
  2. The variation of tickets prices per month, from January 2010 to December 2015 (or, otherwise, the latest month available).
    The House of Commons holds this information for ticket prices, from March 2014 (CSV CSV 1 KB), when audio tours first became available to the public, to December 2015. Please note that the figures are shown in financial years.
