ORA students staying at Imperial College London have been making the most of their time in the famous city by seeing iconic landmarks and museums.
During a walking tour of the city, pupils marvelled at St Paul’s Cathedral, designed by the renowned Christopher Wren between 1675 and 1710, and remarked at the ornate Houses of Parliament. Students also strolled along the more modern Millennium Bridge, with many recognising the structure from the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince film. It was an exciting moment to walk across the iconic bridge used in the famous film franchise, though the Golden Jubilee Bridge was also structurally impressive if slightly less publicised in major Hollywood movies!
These cornerstones of London architecture inspired students in their visit to the Tate Modern, a contemporary art museum. This modern museum is home to spectacular examples of art, including exhibitions centring around Picasso and Abstract Photography. After such a busy day out in London, students definitely felt exhilarated by art and architecture and enjoyed a relaxing evening chatting about what they had seen.
