How do I organise a Tour of Parliament?

David can arrange individual or group tours of the Houses of Parliament for constituents. If you would look to book a tour please call the constituency office on 01925 231267.

What does a Tour involve?

Each tour generally includes (security and chamber sittings permitting) the Royal Rooms, the House of Lords and the House of Commons. 

If you are thinking of planning a tour, you should bear in mind that 
Tours start every 5 minutes and last approximately 75 minutes.

I'd like to watch a debate

Tickets can also be obtained if you wish to watch a debate from the Public Gallery of the House of Commons.  Each MP is allocated two tickets about once a fortnight but it is sometimes possible to secure additional tickets if necessary. If you are interested, please call David's constituency office on 01925 231267.

If you are interested in attending a debate, you should keep in mind that: 

  • The House of Commons usually sits Monday to Thursday (and occasionally on Fridays).
  • It is much more difficult to obtain Gallery tickets for Prime Minister's Questions (on Wednesday at 12 noon). MPs are allocated two PMQ tickets approximately three to four times per year only. It is therefore not possible to guarantee PMQ tickets for any given Wednesday.  If you wish to watch PMQ's you will need to be flexible about the date and contact the constituency office as far in advance as possible. 

Unless specified otherwise, Select Committee evidence sessions are usually open to the public. Committees meet throughout the week but not usually on Fridays. Places are limited and there is no system of tickets or advance booking.
