Itinerary

Description

Everyone knows what Parliament looks like – from the outside. Viewed from Westminster Bridge, it’s the number one establishing shot for any film that’s set in London, used in everything from James Bond to the Daleks.

Now here’s your chance to see SW1A 0AA as only MPs normally see it, from the inside. On this visit we open up the inspection panel and look in on the machinery of government with a revealing tour through the gilded meeting rooms and portrait-hung debating chambers of the Palace of Westminster. Feel a thousand years of history living, breathing and working all around you as you tour the Lords Chamber, the Commons, The Queen’s Robing Room, Westminster Hall and the Royal Gallery.

Coach Itinerary

Saturday: After a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to central London for your self-guided audio tour of the Houses of Parliament. Walk the same halls and corridors as the Prime Minister under the stony gaze of his marble-statued forbears. Explore the august committee rooms overlooking the Thames, where once the noxious ‘Great Stink’ made government work impossible and forced legislation to clean up the river. Visit 11th-century Westminster Hall, built by King William Rufus who demanded that it should be huge in order to impress the Saxon peasants (and then complained it wasn’t big enough).


If politics seems small on the TV, it’s positively overpowering in real life as you stand in the House of Commons itself, scene of the most momentous and dramatic debates of modern times. In the late afternoon we’ll rejoin the coach and make our way to your hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

Sunday: After breakfast we’ll drop you off in central London for some time at leisure. You can enjoy some free time to explore the famous monuments, museums and historic sites that in London are practically one street in any direction. If you’d rather do some shopping in the capital, then why not take a trip to Harrods and Harvey Nichols. The coach home will depart in the early afternoon.
