Westminster Trips

It is always a great pleasure for me to meet and welcome constituents, local community groups and schools who take the time to come to London to explore the Houses of Parliament.

Free tours are available for Rochester & Strood constituents and can be booked via my office, details are available in the 'Contact Kelly' section on this website. Tours are generally in high demand and can be booked up to 6 months in advance. Early booking is recommended. 

If I book a tour through my MP what will it cover?

An expert guide will accompany you on a 75 minute tour that recounts the history of the Palace of Westminster and describes how the business and traditions of both Houses contribute to the day to day workings of the UK Parliament.

When the Houses are sitting, the full tour route may not always be available and can be subject to last minute changes or cancellation due to parliamentary business.
