Members of the public will soon be able to have lunch at the Palace of Westminster where some of the past Prime Ministers, from Sir Winston Churchill to Margaret Thatcher, once dined.

Due to the upcoming general election on July 4 and the dissolution of Parliament until then, all business in the House of Commons and House of Lords has come to an end.

During this period the House of Lords Public Dining Experience will return to the Peers’ Dining Room.

From June 10 until July 3, the public will be able to dine like a politician for £55 a head.

The summer seasonal menu includes a selection of small plates using ‘the finest British ingredients’, and there’s also a menu of wine, tea or coffee as well as petit fours. 

Get there early and you can also have a drink in the Peers’ Guestroom Bar overlooking the River Thames.

Bookings are open at midday on Tuesday June 4 and each booking is for a 2-hour slot.

The House of Lords is the second chamber of the UK Parliament and occupies the southern part of the historic Palace of Westminster.
