Discontinued: Parliament Tour with Tea alongside the River Thames

Step into one of the most jaw dropping active government buildings in the world with this full tour of the Palace of Westminster, starting with Westminster Hall, which has been hosting state functions and dignitaries from around the globe for nearly 1,000 years.

You’ll tour the building with an expert guide who can answer all your questions while providing fascinating insight into the art and architecture adorning every corner. You'll get to see the Queen's Robing Room, where she puts on her crown before the State Opening of Parliament each year, as well as the Chamber of the House of Commons and the Chamber of the House of Lords.

And of course, your trip to London wouldn't be complete without tea! As a special treat, the tour ends on the terraces of the Palace overlooking the Thames river. This special terrace is where you’ll have your traditional English afternoon tea, including cakes, scones, sandwiches, and petit fours.

From here, you’ll have stunning views up and down the river and enjoy taking in the expansive exterior of the Palace of Westminster. It's the perfect way to enjoy an afternoon in London!
