Beehive & Parliament House

You are here Home  > North Island  > Wellington Region  > Wellington >  Beehive & Parliament House

The eye-catching Beehive (the Executive Wing of the New Zealand Parliament Buildings) and the adjoining Parliament House and Parliamentary Library lie at the heart of Wellington’s parliamentary district, a short walk from the train station.

Although parts of these buildings are usually closed to the public the New Zealand Parliament’s visitor centre on the ground floor of the Beehive conducts one-hour free guided tours where you can discover where New Zealand’s politicians work. The visitor centre also has a small exhibition space where you can watch a short video presentation about New Zealand’s Parliament. It is advisable to book your tour at least 24 hours in advance either by emailing or by calling (04) 817 9503.
