Overview

A fascinating place to visit, excellent accessibility, strongly recommended.

Transport & Parking

4

Westminster Station is just across the road and has step-free access to the Jubilee, District and Circle Lines.

Access

4.5

Excellent accessibility for wheelchair users. Manual wheelchairs available to borrow at the start of the tour. There is only one stretch of the tour you can't do in a wheelchair, and any member of staff will take you on a delicious and fascinating detour, a lovely bonus for wheelchair users, to 'bridge the gap'. You don't miss anything, it's just that you don't actually roll through St Stephen's Chapel.

Toilets

5

Brilliant accessible toilet (see attached photo below) behind the souvenir shop which you enter via a side-door in Westminster Hall. Everything in the toilet perfectly designed and laid out, and the red emergency cord was not tied up - five stars!

Staff

5

All staff very clued-up, massively friendly, and they bend over backwards to be helpful.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

You get to pass through Westminster Hall, the House of Commons and one of its voting lobbies, the House of Lords and one of its voting lobbies, and several other magnificent and fascinating areas.
