Come and visit the Houses of Parliament this festive season and enjoy one of the guided, audio-guided or family tours.

Tickets can now be booked for tours on:

  • 3, 10, 17, 22, 23, 28, 29 and 30 December 2016
  • 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 January 2017 

In addition to the regular Blue Badge-guided tours and audio-guided tours, we are also running Christmas themed family guided tours. All tours include the Commons Chamber, Lords Chamber, Central Lobby, St Stephen’s Hall and medieval Westminster Hall.

Due to restoration and renewal work, there will be some changes to tours between 22 December 2016 and 7 January 2017.

We are delighted to welcome back the Reading A440 choir, whose repertoire of seasonal music will stir the Christmas spirit in visitors of all ages. The choir will be in Westminster Hall beside the Parliamentary Christmas tree on Saturday 10 December 2016.

Tickets can be purchased online, by calling +44 (0)20 7219 4114 or in person from the Ticket Office at the front of Portcullis House on Victoria Embankment.

After a tour, pop into the Jubilee Shop just off Westminster Hall and indulge in some Christmas shopping. The shop stocks an attractive range of exclusive gifts including the popular chocolates, wine and whisky.
