Please ensure you arrive 20 minutes in advance of your time slot to ensure you have enough time to go through security.

Parliament has no facilities for leaving items; commercial outlets are available nearby at Victoria and Charing Cross stations. This tour is not recommended for young children due to the length of the tour and the amount of walking
