What happens on the day?
On arrival at the Houses of Parliament simply present the entry voucher, that you will have received when you redeemed your gift experience in exchange for your audio guides before setting off around the House of Commons, House of Lords and all the interesting bits in-between. Your tour will take around 60 to 75 minutes, and is available in several languages should English not be your first choice.
At your chosen time you’ll also take a table at the Park Plaza County Hall for your pre-booked afternoon tea, including finger sandwiches, pastries, scones with cream and jam and your choice of loose leaf tea. You will be provided with a second voucher after making your booking which you will need to present to the restaurant.
For your unlimited day of river cruising, you’ll take the 3rd voucher, that you will have received when you redeemed your gift experience along to Westminster pier on the day you wish to take the cruise and exchange it with the booking staff for an unlimited River Red Rover ticket. You may embark and disembark from the piers at Westminster, London Eye, Tower and Greenwich, cruising between them as many times as you wish during one day.
