Eastbourne and Willingdon MP Caroline Ansell showed 45 people around the House of Commons on Monday when they signed up for her bus tour to Westminster.

It is the second time the trip has been arranged and Caroline led her constituents through the voting lobby and into the chamber, pointing out her 'place', reliving big moments of the last year and answering questions about parliamentary protocol. 

She then joined the group for a light lunch before her staff conducted a further tour of the House of Lords and Central Lobby.

“This was another great chance for local people to come to Westminster and see where and how our democracy works,” said Caroline.

“I have been delighted by the response to this new initiative and the very many people who want to come up and have a tour. To be able to talk what I do with those I represent is an important part of the job and I very much enjoy it.”

The price of the trip is £20 and includes a return coach journey and a light lunch. Caroline makes no profit from the tours.

Eastbourne or Willingdon constituents can make a booking by calling Caroline’s office on 409000 or emailing caroline.ansell.mp@parliament.uk
