Arranging a tour of Parliament

MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones has reminded constituents that they can book free Democratic Access Tours through their MP.

Arrange a tour through your MP

Members of the public are able to visit the Houses of the Parliament and Palaces of Westminster. Paid tours can be arranged through the Houses of Parliament but free tours are available to UK Residents booking through their MP.

These tours are only available on certain days and at certain times, depending on whether Parliament is in session or in recess. Tours last approximately one hour.

If you would like Darren to try to arrange a tour on your behalf please email the office. Applications should be made as far in advance as possible (up to 6 months) and as it can be difficult to arrange for everyone to take a tour on their preferred date, it would be helpful to provide some alternative dates.

You can find out more about dates and times of small group/individual tours here. 

Schools can find out more about arranging a group visit to Parliament by visiting the Education Service website.

MP hosts Pub Politics in Westbury-on-Trym

Bristol North West MP, Darren Jones hosted his second ‘Pub Politics’ at The White Lion in Westbury-on-Trym on Friday 10th November.

Darren heard from constituents who shared their views on policy issues including Brexit and more local issues such as concerns about crime and cuts to public services.

Darren said:

“It was fantastic to talk to a variety of constituents at my second pub politics, after the first was held in Horfield in September (picture below). This get-together was well attended and informal so people feel comfortable having a chat about both national and local issues. Due to Christmas and New Year festivities, the next Pub Politics will be held in mid-January. I also host Cafe Politics sessions for those who prefer to chat over a coffee in a more family-friendly environment, the next will be held on the morning of 2nd December in Avonmouth with venue information to follow soon.”

All of Darren’s events are promoted on this website and Darren’s Facebook page. Key events are also featured in the monthly e-newsletters which you can sign-up to here.
