Parliament is open and accessible to all visitors with disabilities.
All tours are accessible by wheelchair users. Alternative routes and viewing points exist for visitors with large motorised wheelchairs. One stop (of seventeen) on the tour requires a slight detour before rejoining the main group.
The public galleries of both Houses and committee rooms are fully wheelchair accessible or have space set aside for wheelchairs.
Visually impaired visitors
Guide dogs can accompany their owners on tours. They are also welcome in the public galleries and committee rooms, but only two at a time within the galleries. If there is no space, visitors may leave their dog with the police.
Deaf or hard of hearing visitors
An interpreter (BSL signer) may accompany you on a tour. Parliament staff will arrange this through the Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID) if given advance warning - but be aware there is heavy demand.
Visitors to the public galleries and committee Rooms must arrange their own interpreters and we require advance notification of their attendance. Contact the Admission Order Officer on 020 7219 3700. The public galleries and committee rooms are fitted with induction loops.
Within Parliament disabled toilets are located off Central Lobby. Visitors going on a tour should be aware that they last around 75 minutes and there are no facilities available at the starting point. Accessible public toilets are at the nearby Westminster tube station.
