London Trip

A group of 24 Year 11 students took part in a cultural trip to London at the end of October organised by the Business Department. After a shaky start with delays on the main line train and underground, the group took off on their London Eye flight, followed by a cruise down the Thames to the O2 and a fun singing, dancing and making music time at the British Music Experience museum.

 The group took to the air again on the Emirates Air Line; the new cable car over the River Thames to the Royal Docks; just a short walk from our hotel. After a quick beautify, the students were off again enjoying the Docklands Light Railway and the London Tube and taking in sights of the Tower of London and Trafalgar Square on our way to the London’s West End. The meal at one of London’s hot nightclub/restaurant spots; Tiger Tiger proved to be the best yet (of the three London trips) for value, service and quality. Then off to the Piccadilly theatre for a bit of Dirty Dancing – the show chosen by the students and a real hit. The students seemed like seasoned Londoners; knowing their way back down to the Embankment and confidently travelling as a group on the Tube and DLR.

 After a hearty buffet breakfast we were off again to the heart of the City of London; the Bank of England handling sheets of £50 notes and attempting to lift gold ingots (they’re heavy).

 A bus ride took us to Covent Garden to enjoy the street artists, the cafes and restaurants and a bit of shopping. Tired they might have been but along the South Bank the students walked, for a quick visit to the Tate Modern before a walk over the Millennium Bridge, the Tube back to Paddington and the train back home.
