Groups and travel trade

Group guided tour in the House of Lords Chamber

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 the February, Easter, Whitsun, Summer and Christmas recesses.

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.

Tours are offered in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese and Welsh.

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 each month; in early April for September tickets, in early May for October tickets, and so on.
