Visit Parliament


Pastries in Parliament

If you’re a constituent and find yourself in London, make plans to stop by my office for Pastries in Parliament, a weekly coffee hour for all East end residents visiting London. I open up my office every Wednesday that Parliament is in session from 9:30-10.30am to chat informally with constituents over a cuppa and some pastries. Simply email david.linden.mp@parliament.uk or call 0207 219 1801 and let us know when you will be in town.

Tours of the House of Commons

If you are a constituent and would like a tour of the House of Commons, free tours can be booked through my office.

The walking tour of the Palace of Westminster includes:

  • Westminster Hall, the ancient hall at the heart of the Palace where Parliament first sat and where many historic events have taken place.
  • The House of Commons, including the Speaker's Chair and the famous green benches and the 'lobbies' where MPs actually vote.
  • The House of Lords, including the Royal Throne.
  • The Queen's Robing Room, Royal Gallery and many other fascinating parts of the Palace of Westminster.

If you wish to arrange a tour, please get in touch

School trips

If you are a school group and would like to visit Parliament, the Education Centre offer some fantastic tours often with a seminar lesson at the end for the pupils. School groups must book their tours through the education service, details of which can be found here.

Alternatively, If you would like me to visit your School please send an email to david.linden.mp@parliament.uk to book an appointment.
