A tour of the Houses of Parliament is the highlight of many a tourist trip to London. So it's surprising how few people who actually live in the city have taken a wander around the historic chambers. If you've ever considered a tour around the seat of government, now is the time to make it happen — with an exclusive discount on tours during the forthcoming recess for party conference season.

What's the deal?

Londonist readers can get 20% off the full adult price of both audio and guided tours, from Tuesday to Thursday between 16 September and 9 October*.

Audio tours allow you to explore the sweeping corridors, the Royal Gallery, the Lords and Commons Chambers and historic Westminster Hall accompanied by audio commentary that brings to life the history, architecture and art of the buildings. There is even a special commentary created for 7-12 year olds, delivered in the style of a ‘live’ news broadcast, complete with time-travelling journalists reporting 'from the scene’ of key moments in Parliament's history.

Just £14 per person, reduced from £17.50

Guided tours put you in the hands of an expert Blue Badge guide who will lead you through the Palace of Westminster, visiting such highlights as the Houses of Lords and Commons, Prince's Chamber, Central Lobby and Westminster Hall. Altogether you get an hour and a half of in-depth knowledge about the art and architecture plus plenty of insight into parliamentary life past and present.

Just £20 per person, reduced from £25
