Parliament Buildings is home to the Northern Ireland Assembly, the legislative body for Northern Ireland established under the Belfast Agreement 1998 (Good Friday Agreement).

Built in 1921 at a cost of nearly £1.7 million, it was designed to house the newly formed Government of Northern Ireland and was officially opened on 16th November 1932 by the then Prince of Wales, on behalf of King George V.

You are welcome to come and visit Parliament Buildings Monday to Friday 09:00 to 16:00 to view the Great Hall or visit the gift and coffee shop.

Public tours are available Monday to Friday (excluding public and bank holidays). They are at 11:00AM and 2:00PM and you need to book a ticket.

When running tours generally last about 45 minutes, and all tours are fully accessible for wheelchair users and people with assistance dogs. A Braille tour script is available at reception.

A Hearing Helper radio system is available for people who are hard of hearing or large groups, and a signed tour in British and Irish sign language is also available. Visitors taking the tour can also request a sign language interpreter. The Events Office will need to know about this before your visit, so please contact staff by telephone on 028 905 21802 or email

The building can be very busy and noisy, especially on Mondays and Tuesdays, which are the days when the Assembly sits. Committees usually meet on Wednesdays and Thursdays, with Fridays generally being the quietest day of the week, although this will depend on what exhibitions and events are on.
