Houses of Parliament, London
Student groups from 7-18 years are able to enjoy a stimulating year-round programme of visits. You group can choose a themed workshop and also tour the awe-inspiring Palace of Westminster, making it a really inspiring visit for all trips to London for schools or colleges.
Visits begin with a tour of the Palace of Westminster, providing the context for learning about the work and role of Parliament. A choice of curriculum-focused workshops follows, including a question and answer session with your school's MP, subject to their availability at the time of your visit.
For Key stage 5 visits the workshop is on Making Laws: We all have to obey laws, but how are they made? Your students will find out by following the process of a bill from the spark of an idea to the Queen putting pen to paper.
A letter must be sent to your local MP or member of the House of Lords to arrange a date. These tours which are free, take 75 minutes approximately and are extremely popular so you are urged to book early to facilitate this.Bookings are taken from four months out.
