Portcullis House is situated opposite the Houses of Parliament. It was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in February 2001 to provide office space for MPs and their staff. The building was designed by the architects Michael Hopkins and Partners. It has within it’s walls a fine selection of portraits and other works of art. The collection records senior Parliamentarians including Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, David Cameron and Tony Benn. It reflects a diversity of styles and approaches by U.K. artists over the last fifty years.

The committee have secured two fully guided private tours focussing on the contemporary portraiture and hopefully a visit to the first-floor committee corridor to view the tapestries (subject to availability).

The tours will last approximately 75mins and are timed for 11.30am and 11.45am.

This event has been organised by the Sussex Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
