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, followed by a series of dynamic and fun workshops at the world-class Parliamentary Education Centre.
Edward always tries to meet visitors from the constituency to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP and local issues. When possible, he will attend a 15 minute Q&A session with visiting schools. Schools can visit on more than one occasion. Unfortunately, Edward cannot meet travel costs.
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).
The best day for a tour is a Tuesday when Parliament is sitting.
Please be aware that tours need to be booked months in advance.
Edward 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 Edward to see the school at work.
Please contact Edward's House of Commons Office to enquire about a visit to Westminster, or if you would like Edward to visit a school.
