They tell the story of the Speaker’s and UK Parliament’s diplomatic relationship to other Commonwealth countries and its significance around the world today.

Displayed within the beautiful surroundings of the Speaker’s State Apartments visitors will see photographs of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s address to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association in Westminster Hall, behind the scenes guests lists and menus from State Dinners held in the State Dining Room and the gold and black robe of state worn by Speaker Hoyle to King Charles III’s Coronation and this year’s international Commonwealth anniversary events.

Cost £20 per person – all profits will go to the Speakers Art Fund – a registered charity which supports arts and educational projects with a focus on increasing understanding of Parliamentary democracy across the UK.
