Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) to close

Many constituents have contacted me in recent months requesting tours of the Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben). Unfortunately, the Elizabeth Tower is now closed to the public for important restoration work, and is not subject to reopen until at least 2018. I understand that this may come as disappointing news to some, however, the Palace of Westminster is an important part of our national heritage and these works have been scheduled for some time.

Walking tours of the Palace of Westminster – including the House of Commons, House of Lords, Westminster Hall, and Royal Gallery - are still available (and free!) and can be booked by contacting my office.
