North Wiltshire has recorded the third highest number of constituents on the free ‘democratic access’ tours offered to show people around Parliament and learn about the history of the Palace of Westminster.
746 constituents from North Wiltshire came to visit Parliament on this free tour in 2019. Only Cities of London and Westminster and East Ham had more with 801 and 750 respectively.
James Gray MP welcomed this news and stated:
“I was delighted to hear this news and to see that we were top of the non-London seats. I greatly enjoy welcoming my constituents to Parliament and enabling them to learn more about the Palace of Westminster. The tour guides are extremely well informed and offer a great insight into the workings and history of this wonderful building. I hope that when the current crisis passes and they reopen for visits, we will be able to welcome many more people to the Houses of Parliament.”
