Pride at Parliament LGBT history tours

Rainbow flag in front of the Elizabeth Tower

This 75 minute guided tour highlights the significant part played by LGBT people at UK Parliament as leaders, legislators, activists, lobbyists and monarchs.

The narrative explores the struggle for civil rights from universal condemnation and victimisation to the relative freedoms and rights enjoyed today.

Beginning in Westminster Hall with tales of medieval kings, the tour moves through the Lords Chamber and the Commons Chamber where stories about members of both Houses are brought to life through the art and architecture.
