School Visits

Every year, I welcome hundreds of schoolchildren to Parliament and I am always trying to meet visitors from the constituency to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and about local issues.

If you would like to book a tour of the Palace of Westminster, please contact my office.

Tours can be booked for groups of 20 people and repeated tours from the same school are acceptable. Unfortunately, I cannot meet travel costs.

For more details, such as the best times to arrange a tour of Parliament, please visit .  Please be aware that tours do need to be booked months in advance.

There are also free educational visits which, in addition to a tour of the Palace, offer children and students the chance to learn more about Parliament through interactive workshops. There is also a travel subsidy available to state schools which could cover up to 75% of your travel costs.

All bookings are made by phone, one school term in advance, on a given date.  To make a booking for an educational visit, please visit .

Bob had the pleasure of visiting the Hungry Caterpillar nursery in Stanmore on Friday 14th June, where he discussed the challenges faced by the sector with staff and met the kids - even having a go at some learning exercises himself.
