  • brucemartin – “I hope to tour the parliament when I next visit the UK. But I understand that they plan to close it for improvements for a few years. Does anyone know if they will have tours while the works are in progress? And what are the expected dates of closure? Thanks. Edit: I will add that I just saw the following on their web site, and I wonder if anything further is known? Are there non-saturday tours in June? When can I go on a guided tour? You can go on a guided tour on Saturdays throughout the year and most weekdays when parliament is not in session. Book tickets now for the following dates: every Saturday until 29 September 2018 Tuesday to Friday between 3 and 13 April 2018 Wednesday to Friday between 25 may and 1 June 2018 Monday to Friday between 1 and 31 August 2018 (except 27 August 2018) Tuesday to Friday between 18 and 28 September 2018”
  • Admin – “Hi bruce. It’s not going to be for a long while yet. There are no official dates, but we’ve heard that the big closure might not happen until 2025. The building will still be undergoing other repairs in the meantime (large parts of it are already covered in scaffolding). The last time we went on a tour of parliament the royal gallery was closed and they had some of the old tiled floors up, so if you do go on a tour expect to see some work going on. The exception is big ben, which has already been closed. That will not reopen again until 2020. It’s also completely covered in scaffolding. The only thing that’s visible now is the small square of the clock face. There are no non-saturday tours in June because that’s when parliament is a working building. It’s only when the mps are on holiday over the summer and during christmas and easter that they offer midweek tours. Ps. We still definitely recomnend going on a tour even with the building works - have a read of the reviews on our blog to see what it’s like inside.”

> Craig’s review of Houses of Parliament – “I love this place. I even love the politicians inside it (well, most of them). If you come to London and don't go to the Summer Opening at the Houses of Parliament then you're basically nuts. It will have been a wasted trip. It's like going to Rome and not seeing the Vatican. Or going to Amsterdam and not getting stoned. A tour of this place will make your holiday. Th… continued”
