Visit: The House of Lords and an opportunity to listen to a Peers' debate

| House of Lords

'Tudor details on a classic body' is how Augustus Pugin described the Palace of Westminster. Sir Charles Barry, who had designed the new Houses of Parliament overall, had little knowledge of the Gothic style and commissioned Pugin to design the interior decoration of the Upper Chamber including the ornate canopy and royal throne. This day has been arranged by the Earl of Selborne and Lord Wakeham, who will describe its art and architecture and will include anecdotes of life within the Chamber. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity to attend a debate.
