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 walking tour of the Palace of Westminster. Often schools are able to book tours through a special Parliamentary Education Service which ensures that the students' age group is taken into account during the tour, although if they do not have enough availability it is possible for us to book you a tour. Please see the following page for more details: http://www.parliament.uk/education/visit-parliament-with-your-school/pa…
Tobias Ellwood MP always tries to meet visitors from the constituency to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and about local issues. The best numbers are 10-25 on each visit; repeated tours from the same school are acceptable. Unfortunately, Tobias Ellwood MP cannot meet travel costs. Tours need to be booked months in advance.
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 (details on www.parliament.uk).
Please note that during summer recess, tours are entirely commercial and cannot be booked via MPs.
Tobias Ellwood MP 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 issues, as well as for Tobias Ellwood MP to see the school at work.
Please contact us to enquire about a visit to Westminster, or if you would like me to visit the school.
