See Tickets has been appointed by the UK parliament to provide its ticketing system for tour bookings of the Houses of Parliament.

Visitors can choose from a selection of guided, self-guided, family and specialist tours, with add-ons including the popular afternoon tea option.

Martin Fitzgerald, chief commercial officer at See Tickets, said: “This is a prestigious win for See Tickets not least because the appointment process required us to demonstrate the very highest standards of service, functionality and security across multiple areas of our business. We are also extremely proud to be working with one of the UK’s most iconic attractions.”

Tours run on Saturdays throughout the year and most weekdays during parliamentary recesses including Easter and the summer.

See Tickets will now power ticket transactions at parliament.uk/visit. Tour tickets are also on sale at seetickets.com.

Amy Pitts, director of visitor and retail services at UK Parliament said: “We have been very impressed with See Tickets’ flexible, full-service approach to business. In addition to a robust ticketing system we also now have account management, detailed reporting and a custom web development on hand – this was all central to our decision to work with See as well as their significant experience working with high profile clients.”

See Tickets already works with clients such as Glastonbury Festival, Kew Gardens, the Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve Fireworks, the British Library, the BBC, Universal Music Group and the Royal Horticultural Society.
