School Parliament visit the Palace of Westminster

Our MPs in the House of Commons

On Monday 4 November our School Parliament visited the Palace of Westminster which serves as the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of Parliament.

They began with a tour of the Parliament buildings, starting in the Robing Room, which includes a secret toilet hidden in the walls, just for the Queen’s visits.

Did you know, you cannot sit in the House of Lords if you are not a Lord or Baroness? 

The School Parliament members learnt how voting works at a general election, what democracy is and they also learnt about the UK Parliament.
