As in-person guided tours of Parliament are rather difficult at the moment, they are offering a regular series of online tours instead.
They are offering 45-minute virtual tours with one of their tour guides, including the Commons Chamber, Lords Chamber and Central Lobby with its magnificent octagonal ceiling, which are followed by 15 minutes for questions.
The presenter will share some of the history of the building and talk about how each room is used today to support the work of UK Parliament. Also included is Westminster Hall, the oldest part of the building and scene to many historic occasions including the trials of Guy Fawkes and King Charles I.
The tours run three times a day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout September – and can be booked here.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
