About this event

We’ll sky-dive in to London and go in to many parts of the Houses of Parliament building, visit its ornate Gothic rooms, the bustling Members’ lobby, the austere Westminster Hall,feel the heat of the debating chambers and several more.

This virtual tour covers the turbulent history in the birth of British democracy, a constant battle between monarch and parliament with gunpowder plots, a civil war, a royal execution, a fire and world war two bombs. We’ll look at pivotal moments and their impact on us today, from the Magna Carta, the Barons’ Revolt, the Bill of rights, the model parliament and votes for women.

So join us for our latest tour and let’s discover how YOU came to power.

REVIEWS:

“I was very pleasantly surprised at the professionalism, knowledge, delivery and attention to detail displayed. It was exceptionally well presented and most informative and was one of the most professionally delivered on line lectures that I have attended …and I look forward to attending future tours by Loona.” Martin Nicholls

“A first class tour guide, an excellent group facilitator and a charming person. He is inspiring, enthusiastic and with endless historical knowledge – which makes me hungry for more. We covered past history (oh so colourful…talking about the inspiration and resilience of people) and right up to the present day….Loona had a story for everything.I won’t spoil it for you by sharing too much ..just to say it really gave me an insight and food for thought.” Sue Goldstein

“From my experience Loona’s tours are head and shoulders above other tours. I will definitely be going on more tours with him and am going to enquire about a tailor made tour with him too.” Julie Bennett, tour guide
