Please allow 20 – 30 minutes for passing through security and finding a Committee Room.
Directions to the House of Lords Committee Room 14 (Please see map)
If coming by Tube:
Exit Westminster Tube station and cross Bridge Street. Walk down St Margaret’s Street as far as St. Stephens Entrance (No. 8 on the map and opposite the end of Westminster Abbey across the street).
Approach the police standing there and inform them that you are to attend the meeting, 'Tribute to Lord King of West Bromwich', in Committee Room 14 in the House of Lords hosted by Mr Virendra Sharma MP. The best policy is to bring and show the invitation letter to them.
The Police will direct you to the security entrance on Cromwell Green (No. 7 on the map) – down the ramp passing by the statue of Cromwell. You will pass through security and follow the signs into Westminster Hall. Walk through the length of the Hall and up the stairs at the far end and turn left. Walk through a narrower corridor with historic paintings on either side and ask the Police at the end where to find Committee Room 14. They will direct you straight through Central Lobby and up stairs to your right at the end of the corridor. Again when at the top of the stairs ask the officials behind the desk where to find Committee Room 14.
Rail and Underground
Visitors travelling on the London Underground can use the District, Circle or Jubilee lines to get to Westminster station, which is fully wheelchair accessible. Victoria, Charing Cross and Waterloo mainline stations are about 20 minutes away by foot and have connecting buses.
Buses stop near Parliament Square in Victoria Street (opposite the Houses of Parliament) and further up towards Trafalgar Square, in Whitehall. All buses in London are now wheelchair accessible.
If you're travelling by foot, Westminster and Waterloo bridges are wheelchair accessible, as are the Golden Jubilee pedestrian bridges (the old Hungerford Bridge), which connect the South Bank with Victoria Embankment.
Members of the public cannot bring bicycles into the parliamentary estate. There are public bicycle racks a short distance away outside 7 Millbank.
There is a commercial car park near Victoria Tower, with advance booking for disabled bays. There are disabled parking spaces nearby in Great Peter Street, Smith Square, and by Methodist Central Hall on Matthew Parker Street. Coming by car is not recommended as parking is expensive and severely limited, and you will often be subject to the congestion charge.
