I am always keen to welcome my constituents to visit Parliament. There are a number of ways that this can be done:
Tours of Parliament
Lasting around 75-90 minutes, the professionally guided tours are a fantastic way to learn about the history of Parliament and its current role in the governance of Britain.
Tours run on weekdays when Parliament is sitting (except Thursdays), but we normally recommend late Monday mornings and Friday afternoons as these allow for off-peak travel to London.
They can be booked for up to 25 people, up to 6 months in advance.
Like the standard tour, school tours are professionally guided but are uniquely tailored for a younger audience.
The Parliamentary Education Centre organises bespoke tours for schools. More information about these can be found here: www.parliament.uk/education/visit-parliament-with-your-school/
I can organise tickets for Departmental Questions, which operate on a rota basis. You can see the rota for the next few weeks/months below – it is the row entitled 'Question Time' which is relevant: https://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-table-office/Oral-Questions…
Again, to allow off-peak travel, the best days are Mondays and Tuesdays.
Prime Minister’s Questions
MPs are only allotted between four and six tickets for their constituents each year, so it is not possible to satisfy the high demand for PMQ tickets. I maintain a waiting list, but this is currently around three years.
Please get in touch if you’d like to be added to this.
For those who want the Commons experience without the wait, Departmental Questions offers a much more immediate alternative (see Departmental Questions above).
