Over the weekend of July 14th and 15th, Mrs Snowdon, Miss Garlick and Mrs McGibbon took 20 Year 10 students to London. The journey started at 5:30am on the Friday morning from Preston Train Station. Once we arrived in London and dropped our luggage at the hotel, we began our walking tour from Kensington, through Knightsbridge, down to Green Park and Buckingham Palace for photo opportunities. We then stopped for refreshments in St James’s Park before heading on down to Horse Guards Parade and onto Whitehall before heading up through Trafalgar Square and across to Covent Garden.
Students then had the opportunity to explore the pedestrianised area of Covent Garden, do a bit of shopping and have some lunch in one of the many cafes. We then gorged ourselves on Pizza Hut buffet before going to see ‘Matilda’ at The Cambridge Theatre, which was truly wonderful and full of ‘Revolting Children’.
After a good night’s sleep and a full breakfast buffet, we then headed for a tour of The Globe Theatre on the South Bank which really helped to bring the study of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to life. After lunch on the South Bank, we took the Tube up to Victoria where we were treated to a performance of ‘Wicked’ at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, before heading home.
A ‘Wicked’ Time was had by all!
