When Julian was an MP, he was able to organise students visits to Parliament. The usual format was a coach trip, arriving in London during the morning for a free walking tour of the Palace of Westminster with an excellent tour guide.
Julian endeavoured to meet as many school groups from the constituency as he could, to talk about the politics and history of Westminster, the work of an MP, and about local and national issues facing our country. From past experience, the best numbers were 10-30 on each visit although more can be accomodated. Some schools may be eligible for a transport subsidy. In order to check, please click on the link here. Please also note that tours need to be booked several weeks or months in advance due to demand.
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 were often free educational exhibitions in Parliament too (details on www.parliament.uk).
The best day for a tour was a Monday when Parliament is sitting (October to July).
Julian Brazier also carried out a programme of school visits when he was MP throughout the constituency. The visits were a good opportunity for students and teachers to talk to their MP about issues, as well as for Julian to see the school at work.
If Julian is re-elected as an MP on 8 June 2017, he will b able to help organise these trips again.
