Trip to Parliament

1st July 2015

On Wednesday 1st July 15 the KS2 School Councillors travelled to Westminster by train and tube.

We took part in a tour of the Houses of Parliament which was really interesting. We had to go through scanners like you do at the airport before we were allowed in. 

We saw a throne that Queen Victoria used to sit on. It had a footstool with it because she was so short.

We went in the House of Lords and Mrs Hubball sat in Lord Sugar’s seat. We got to feel the dints in the desk where Winston Churchill used to bang his Signet ring. 

We couldn’t go in the House of Commons because David Cameron  was in there hosting Prime Minister’s Question time
