New dates for tours of Houses of Parliament during the election campaign

On a guided tour in the Houses of Parliament.

The Houses of Parliament is open to visitors during the period before the UK General Election on 8th June. And to encourage young adults to register, vote and participate in the democratic process, all UK ‘young voters’ currently aged 18 to 24 can book a free place on a tour of the Houses of Parliament.

Visitors will discover the House of Commons, House of Lords and Westminster Hall, and see inside the debating chambers and voting lobbies of both Houses. At the conclusion of their tour, visitors will be invited to make use of Parliament’s pop-up electoral registration centre in Westminster Hall, where parliamentary staff will be on hand to provide assistance with the registration process.

To ensure as many young voters as possible take the opportunity to visit Parliament, eight additional tour dates have been added in May. A ticket is still required and proof of age will be requested on entry.

Tours are available on the following days:
Monday to Saturday between 11 and 20 May
Wednesday to Saturday between 25 May and 3 June
The Houses of Parliament is also taking part in the first ever London History Day on Wednesday 31 May with a range of tours and events.
