School Visits

Parliament has a dedicated Education Centre, which was officially opened on 15 July 2015.

The Centre has a range of facilities to inspire and connect young people with Parliament and democracy. Through making use of creative and immersive technology, the Centre creates a unique learning experience and is highly recommended.

For details on the service and facilities available as well as how to book a visit, please visit their website:

I always do try 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, I am unable to 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

In addition to Parliamentary visits, I also carryout 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 me to see the school at work.

If you would like me to visit your school, please get in touch using the details in the 'contact' tab at the top of this page.
