London is Calling!
Eye watering architecture
If you’ve taken a trip to London, you’ve been to Big Ben, you’ve been to Westminster, but have you really seen it? The Shard, the Gherkin, Shakespeare’s Globe, the 20 Fenchurch, love them or hate them, architecture doesn’t get much better than this!
From the royals to the ripper. Our capital doesn’t miss a beat in terms of history. Here you can trace back to the Tudors through to the modern-day parliament! The great fire of London, the Blitz, Shakespeare and the plague. “Cor, blimey!” is there anything this city hasn’t seen? We recommend the Natural History Museum, Imperial War Museum & British Museum for students, and anyone really!
It’s all about the arts
London spearheads the European art scene, and oh boy will you know about it! The Tate modern boasts some of the country’s most impressive exhibits, while the streets of Shoreditch & Brixton host some of the most colourful! After all singing, all dancing? The West End will have you and your students screaming from the rooftops, The Lion King, Mama Mia and Chicago are all big names to have graced the stage.
The home of sport
London, home to 6 premier league clubs, flying our flag in all things international. From Twickenham to Wembley, it’s like this city was built for sporting legends! Let’s not forget the Olympic games in 1908, 1948 and more recently in 2012, making it the most represented city in the Olympic history.
The unmissable moments
Forget the guidebook and go ‘off-piste’ for the best bits of London. Here are our must-see’s: The Whale skeleton at the natural history museum, the ArcelorMittal Orbit at the Olympic Park, hiring Boris bikes some strawberries and cream at Wimbledon. (The last one is none negotiable.)
Tell me something I don’t know…
The Millennium Dome is so big that it can fit the Great Pyramids of Giza comfortably under the roof!
