Every year MPs welcome hundreds of school students to Parliament. The usual format is a coach trip, arriving in London during the morning for a free walking tour of the Palace of Westminster (see 'Westminster Trips' tab for more details). Schools can also use the opportunity to take in nearby sights such as Tate Britain, the National Gallery or the London Eye before heading home. There are often free educational exhibitions in Parliament too (details on www.parliament.uk).
The optimum size of a group is between 10-30; repeated tours from the same school are acceptable.
See http://www.parliament.uk/education/visiting-parliament/ for more details
Unfortunately Damian cannot meet travel costs however he will always try to meet constituency visitors to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and about local issues.
Damian also carries out a programme of school visits throughout the constituency. The visits are a good opportunity for students and teachers to talk to their MP about issues, as well as for Damian to see the school at work.
Please contact us to enquire about a visit to Westminster, or if you would like Damian to visit a school.
