“Depends on who you go with”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Have been both ways - as a normal individual and as a guest.
Far better to wander around with your local member and get to meet some of the characters and atmosphere.
It is a huge building and you almost need to use a gps to get around.

“The gallery viewing”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Ringing the designated number at 9.00 a.m on the day you wish to view parliament is a sure way to ensure you get a seat in the gallery. Attending a free guide tour is well worthwhile.
