School Visits

Every year MPs welcome hundreds of school students to Parliament. The usual format is a coach trip arriving in London during the morning for a free one hour workshop and a tour of the House of Parliament.

Visits to London can also take in nearby London sights such as Tate Britain, the National Gallery or the London Eye before heading home. There are often free educational exhibitions in Parliament too. See for more details.

Nicky always tries to meet groups from the constituency to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and about local issues.

To book a visit, please contact the Education Service on 0207 219 4496 or at

Please note that you will usually need to book months in advance and that, unfortunately, neither MPs nor Parliament can meet travel costs.

Nicky also carries out a programme of school visits throughout the constituency. The visits are a good opportunity for students and teachers to talk to their MP about what an MP does, current affairs and local issues, as well as for Nicky to see the school at work. If you would like Nicky to visit your school or if you require any assistance, please contact Nicky's Westminster office on 020 7219 7224.

Finally, Parliament has a number of educational resources and lesson plans for teachers which you may find helpful:
