Very interesting tour with a very knowledgeable guide who was happy to answer all of our questions and not trying to rush through the tour.

It nice to see and walk around but it is not a big attraction that you will spend many hours. A quick visit is more than enough.

Easy to get timed tickets either by website or phone. Harder to find the place to pick them up (across the road). Did the audio tour. Guided tours all sold out. Audio is self-paced so I like it better. Can't think of anything I didn't enjoy.

Very informative guide who put a completely different slant on the visit. Gave lots of information about the history of the buildings and the way the system works.

We got a visit through or local MP (ask in advance). A friend used to work as a researcher there so we knew a few interesting secrets before going. Saw the hidden tables outside the lords, went inside Emily Davison's cupboard and had a nice tea on the terrace. Lovely visit, like the post office

The tour itself was excellent, our guide was very informative and helpful, the visit took just under 2 Hours and we covered a lot of ground. It... More

It was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in terms of architecture, both from outside and inside. I took the audio guided tour (available only on Saturdays) and I will say it was really worth the price. The commentary was very detailed and descriptive, the staff well versed and rooms just splendid. The palace looks superb... More

Our hotel was just across the river & the views were stupendous. Our walking tour, both inside and out, was very interesting & well worth the time. Loved the river views of Big Pen, the Parliament, the cathedral. Must see for everyone visiting London.

I went on a tour of the Houses of Parliament on a school trip. The tour guide was very good, telling us lots about each room of Parliament. It is a beautiful building, definitely worth having a tour of.

This is one of the best known places in London - you have to visit. You can get a great view from one of the Thames river cruises and through a walk around tour.
