See British democracy in action at Houses of Parliament. During the week, all British residents and overseas visitors can watch legislators debating for free. If your visit falls on a Saturday, or during the summer recess, you'll be able to take a guided tour of the building. The tours are comprehensive, starting in the Queen’s Robing Room, moving through chambers for debating and voting, and finishing in medieval Westminster Hall. Along the way, you'll encounter grandly appointed spaces and collect knowledge about British parliamentary procedure. UK residents can also tour Elizabeth Tower, but foreign visitors cannot. A visit to Houses of Parliament represents just the start of the adventure when you use our London trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • The Houses of Parliament always look amazing but I have always felt that at night time they are at their best. Big Ben towering above!

  • Very busy. We went early and it was still absolutely crazy. Hard to see the whole thing as there is so much there. Do a little research ahead and decide what you most want to see and start there.
