Take a tour of the Houses of Parliament this summer!

2018 marks 100 years since some women, and all men, could vote for the first time.

26 July 2018 – 1 September 2018

Monday to Saturday until 1 September, you can take a tour of this iconic building and explore the 'Voice & Vote' exhibition in Westminster Hall which celebrates this centenary.

Choice of tours
Immerse yourself in this working building which is steeped in 1,000 years of history and filled with stunning art and architecture.

Choose either a self-guided audio tour or a guided tour. Special versions of both tours are available for families with younger children (age 7-12).
 
Voice & Vote exhibition
Open until 6 October, visit the free exhibition ‘Voice & Vote: Women's Place in Parliament’ in Westminster Hall.

Combining interactive features and historic exhibits, 'Voice & Vote' highlights the campaign for votes for women and the representation of women in the UK Parliament.
 
Limited season tours
The 'From Petitions to Prime Ministers' guided tours are exclusive to Tuesdays and Saturdays this August.

The tour traces the journey from the early petitioning for women’s suffrage to the UK’s first two female Prime Ministers and the prominent role of women in Parliament today.
