The History Department are happy to announce the History GCSE London trip. It will take place on October 8th – 10th 2014. The itinerary includes visits to :
Enjoy stunning London views from the high level walkways and continue to the Victorian Engine Rooms to learn about the inner workings of
the Most Famous Bridge in the World.
The Tower of London
See The White Tower and Crown Jewels. The White Tower is one of the most famous castle keeps in the world. It was built, to awe, subdue and terrify Londoners and to deter foreign invaders. It’s an iconic symbol of London and Britain.
Along with the rest of the Tower complex, the White Tower is one of the most important historic buildings in the world.
The Imperial War museum
On 19 July 2014, for the Centenary of the First World War, a transformed IWM London will reopen with ground-breaking new First World War Galleries and a newly configured atrium displaying our iconic large objects. To mark the First World War Centenary they will also be opening the largest exhibition of British First World War art for almost 100 years.
The London Dungeons
The Dungeons brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides in a truly unique and exciting walk through experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s hilarious fun and it’s sometimes a bit scary.
Westminster Abbey is one of the world’s greatest churches, a designated World Heritage Site and ‘Royal Peculiar’, which means the Dean is directly answerable to the monarch. The coronation of Kings and Queens has taken place here since 1066, and many of the nation’s Kings and Queens are buried in the Abbey
All this with a Thames River Trip and a ride on the London Eye
The all inclusive cost is £250
