The excitement of a trip to England’s famous capital city, London, had our students coming downstairs with more of a spring in their step than usual.
With light showers of rain on the horizon, students were sure to kit themselves out with umbrellas and rain coats as well as cameras before they climbed on board the coach.
As the students arrived in the city, they were quick to start pointing out any landmarks, red busses, or black taxis that they could find. They all proved for great photo backgrounds as the students made the short walk from the coach to the Natural History Museum.
Inside, the students split up to explore the most interesting parts of the museum, whether that was the dinosaur, British wildlife, or space exhibits. With 80 million items to look at, it’s safe to say nobody was bored! After an extensive hunt through the gift shop, it was time to sit down outside to eat their packed lunches and chat about everything they’d discovered before they started towards Kensington Palace.
The British Royal Family are often a fascinating subject for our international students and our Lady Margaret cohort were no exception. They loved making their way through the interactive exhibits and audio sequences to learn all about some of the monarchs from the last two centuries. Between rain showers, there was even time for a quick walk around Kensington’s beautiful gardens.
Back at Lady Margaret’s in the evening, our students played some quick games of table tennis and football to round off their fantastic day before heading to bed.
