With antiquity, art and architecture in abundance, the guided Summer Tours at the Houses of Parliament certainly get our vote. The home of London’s modern day politics holds over a thousand years of history – the building of the majestic Westminster Hall began as early as 1097. Tours follow the footsteps of the monarch through The Queen’s Robing Room, the Royal Gallery and the Lords Chamber, with a chance to get your mock lobby on and visit the Commons Chamber too. And, after all that parliamentary pottering, you can recline and dine in the elegant Thames-facing Pugin Tea Room. What delightfull deplomicy. Kitty Knowles
Summer tours run between July 31 – August 31. See more info on the Houses of Parliament tours.
