Guided tours of the Elizabeth Tower take place at 9.15am, 11.15am and 2.15pm every Monday to Friday (except Bank Holidays), with a maximum number of 16 visitors per tour. These tours are very popular and if you are planning a visit please give as much notice and flexibility as possible.
Tours of the tower are free and are open to UK permanent residents.
Children under the age of 11 are unfortunately not permitted. Visitors aged between 11 and 18 must be accompanied by an adult and school groups are required to have a minimum of two adults within the group. All visitors must be capable of ascending and descending the 334 step spiral staircase -- further health and safety information is available here.
If you would like to book a tour, please contact Mike's office. As soon as we have received your request we will contact the Parliamentary Tours Office to find out whether they have any spaces available.
All visitors must provide personal information for security vetting prior to the tour date. Any personal information will of course be treated with the strictest confidence at all times. Failure to provide this information in advance will regrettably result in access being refused. Full guidance can be found here.
