Harrow House in Parliament

Harrow House students recently took a private tour of the Houses of Parliament with Lord Glasman. He took the students into the House of Lords to show them the debating hall and they then went for a coffee in the Lord’s Terrace bar; it was a great tour.

We would like to thank Lord Glasman for his time and hope we can do this again in the future.
