Tour description provided by Viator

Step into the heart of the British democracy with the only fully-guided visit through Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. With an expert guide and small group, this an intimate and informative way to visit London’s most exclusive building.
Take advantage of the first entry of the day into Westminster Abbey and enjoy a full tour of the church with an expert local guide to help you interpret the symbolism packed into every corner. You’ll also learn interesting tidbits about the Royal Weddings and the famous people buried here, like Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. Then head over to the Houses of Parliament, which are only open to select groups on Saturdays and when Parliament is out of session. You’ll see Westminster Hall (at 1,000 years old, the oldest room in the building) the House of Commons and House of Lords, and lesser known areas like the Division Lobbies and Robing Room - where the Queen prepares before her annual speech to parliament. Most groups see the Houses of Parliament with an audio guide, but you’ll soak up every detail from a guide whose job is to immerse you in the living history of this incredible building with fascinating stories and anecdotes.
