Discover what it looks like inside the seat of power in the UK on a tour of the famous Houses of Parliament in Westminster, and take an audio tour through the Commons and Lords before an afternoon tea in the Park Plaza County Hall just across the river with an unlimited River Thames cruise either side of it with this intriguing London day out for two.
Standing with a thousand years of history, stunning art and architecture and a hearty dose of politics, the Palace of Westminster is filled with interesting things about how our country has worked for centuries. From Westminster Hall to the Commons and Lords Chambers through the Royal Gallery and St Stephen’s Hall, you’ll see the Houses of Parliament brought to life across 60 to 75 minutes of audio commentary.
Before or after your Houses of Parliament tour you can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea at the Park Plaza County Hall, where finger sandwiches, pastries and scones will be waiting along with a pot of loose leaf tea to give you a proper day out treat. Not only that, but all day you’ll be able to make use of an unlimited hop-on, hop-off sightseeing river cruise, so you can take in some of the river sights too.
