Come and view this unique space normally reserved for MPs, discover the history of the Library and learn how its work supports democracy today.
Housed in magnificent Pugin designed rooms, the Library holds over 230,000 publications and runs an ever-growing research and information service.
The Commons Library team responds to around 30,000 enquiries from MPs and their staff, and releases 900 briefings per year on a broad range of topics, on everything from Brexit to bees.
These tours take up to one hour. Early booking is recommended as places are limited.
