Members Visit the Palace of Westminster

Probus visits Parliament

Forty people, consisting of members of the Probus Club of Basingstoke, together with their wives and partners, enjoyed a fascinating guided tour of the Palace of Westminster at the beginning of January.

“We had a marvellous time seeing around the mother of Parliaments with its splendid architecture, wonderful statues and paintings. The place has a great sense of history and pageantry which brought back images of famous historical moments and being able to go through all those amazing rooms, including the Lords and Commons chambers, was a great privilege.”

The trip was arranged through Maria Miller MP and her office which meant that two guides were on hand specifically for the Probus Club’s tour.

Alan continued “This outing is typical of the social events we undertake and prospective members can see some of the things we have done and are planned by looking on our website
