Visiting Westminster

Ranil Jayawardena is delighted to sponsor free guided tours of Parliament for his constituents. Subject to Parliamentary business, he has always tried to meet visitors from the constituency to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and about local issues. Unfortunately, Mr Jayawardena cannot meet travel costs.

The walking tour of the Palace of Westminster lasts up to 90 minutes and includes:

- Westminster Hall, the ancient heart of the Palace where Parliament first sat, where many historic events have taken place
- The House of Commons, including the Speaker's Chair and the famous green benches and the 'lobbies' where MPs actually vote
- The House of Lords, including the Royal Throne
- The Queen's Robing Room, Royal Gallery and many other fascinating parts of the Palace of Westminster

Quite understandably, these tours are very popular and places are limited so generally have to be booked about six months in advance. Please contact us - by email to - to enquire about a visit to Westminster.
