London Visit

Following months of planning, the day had finally arrived! ‘London city here we come.’

On a dark, wet morning in Liverpool we met at 7.15 at Lime Street station and by 7.30 everyone had arrived and was ready to board. The train journey was great and went quite fast and, although lots of bacon butties were consumed, nobody was ill.

As we came closer to Euston station the sun began to shine in readiness for our group. We made our way to the underground, which was an experience for the students on a busy Saturday morning (!) and headed towards Earls Court, which was the area in which we were staying.

On arrival at the Hostel, everyone was ready for a sit down and a bite to eat. The hostel had a nice courtyard where we chilled out and had lunch.

Our first trip of the day was to the Tate Gallery on the South bank, where we spent a couple of hours visiting some exhibitions and seeing some interesting pieces of Art - some of which were very 'interesting' indeed! We walked back along the Millennium Bridge, a famous landmark for the Harry Potter movie.

We returned to the Hostel to freshen up and get our glad rags on in readiness for the evening activities. We had a lovely meal in Frankie and Benny’s and following this, had a musical extravaganza at the Lyric Theatre watching, singing and dancing to ‘Thriller Live’, which was excellent. Mrs Kelly in particular seemed keen to display her vocal talents!

After a long and busy day, we headed home to bed to get some beauty sleep ready for the next eventful day ahead.

Day 2 began with a nice breakfast to set us up for the day. Our first stop today was The London Bus Tour. We boarded the open-top bus and off we went for a tour of the city. The lady providing the commentary was excellent and explained the sights to a tee. The views of St Pauls Cathedral as we passed and the ringing of the bells on a Sunday morning was my favourite part of the tour, although I’m sure everyone had a favourite part.

We departed the bus at the Tower of London and had a quick half an hour to grab a snack and some souvenirs before boarding the Riverboat tour of the Thames, which was another fabulous experience and very informative.

Our final activity was the London Eye, for which we had priority booking - so no queuing which was great as it was cold and a bit wet at this stage of the day! The students all did really well, with some overcoming their fears to hop on board. Our guide was lovely and catered well for the students. She really involved the students within the whole ride and, following her commentary, finished off with a quiz which the students interacted with brilliantly.  Unfortunately, this was our final activity but a great way to spend the last hour of our trip.

On arrival, back in Liverpool everyone was ready for their home comforts!

A fabulous London trip with a great bunch of students and staff. See you again soon London.
