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.
Heather 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 10-30 on each visit; repeated tours from the same school are acceptable. Unfortunately, Heather cannot meet travel costs but there are subsidies available to schools. Further information is available here.
Please note that 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.
Heather Wheeler 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 Heather Wheeler 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.
