Every year MPs welcome hundreds of school students to Parliament. Pupils usually arrive in London during the morning for a free walking tour of the Palace of Westminster (see Westminster for more details). The best numbers are 10-30 on each visit; repeated tours from the same school are acceptable. Unfortunately, Jo 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 of these can be found on www.parliament.uk).
The best day for a tour is a Tuesday when Parliament is sitting (between October and July).
Jo Johnson also welcomes the opportunity to visit schools throughout the constituency. These visits are a good opportunity for students and teachers to talk to their MP about local and national issues, as well as for Jo to see the school at work.
Westminster tours need to be booked in advance.
Please contact us to enquire about a visit to Westminster, or if you would like Jo to visit your school.
