Rachel has launched a series of coach tours to Westminster.

The tours give constituents the opportunity of a day out to London, with the chance to meet their Member of Parliament in an exclusive Q&A session in Westminster Hall followed by an official tour of the Palace of Westminster. Participants will also have plenty of time to browse the gift shop and use the public restaurant – and all for just £14. The price has been set to merely cover the costs of the coach hire.

Tours are currently scheduled for the following dates:

  • Friday, 26 October 2018
  • Friday, 30 November 2018
  • Friday, 18 January 2019

Rachel has enlisted the help of local coach company Hardings to provide an executive coach for each trip, with tours leaving Redditch around 9am and returning at 9pm on each day. There will motorway stops during the outward and return journeys, while a member of staff will be on hand during each trip to guide travellers through their day and answer any questions.

Rachel said: “I know from talking to other MPs how popular these trips to Westminster are and I’m really looking forward to welcoming constituents to my place of work in London. Parliament is a busy but wonderful place and visitors are usually very impressed with the atmosphere and history offered.

“I believe it is really important that we provide easy access to Parliament, and I can promise you a great day out.”

Booking is now open for the above dates and should they prove popular as anticipated, more dates will be added next year. Anyone interested in booking their place for one of these dates should e-mail Rachel’s Constituency Support Manager Andrew Powell on andrew.powell@parliament.uk, or call him on 01527 591334 (Wednesday to Friday only), first to check availability, and he will then advise of the booking procedure.
