As voters prepare to head to the polls on June 8, all those currently aged between 18 to 24 can book a free place on a tour of the Houses of Parliament.

The tour will allow visitors to explore the House of Commons, Houses of Lords and Westminster Hall

To ensure as many young voters as possible take the opportunity to visit parliament, eight additional tour dates have been added this month from Monday to Saturday between May 11 and May 20 and from Wednesday to Saturday between May 25 and June 3.
