London Trip

After an early start (6.25am from Ruabon), the group arrived in London, checking into their accommodation near St Paul’s.

The group quickly set about the activities, first visiting The Houses of Parliament. The pupils were given a full tour. They even got the chance to stand on the floor of the House of Commons at the famous dispatch boxes.

After dinner, they visited the Imperial War Museum. The group was able to tour the exhibits charting WW1, WW2 and the Holocaust.

An evening treat saw them visit the very top of the Shard, Britain’s tallest building at over 1,016 ft.

Day 2 started with a visit to the London Dungeons, coming face to face with some of Britain’s most infamous criminals, such as Dick Turpin & Guy Fawkes.

After lunch, they visited ‘The Clink’ museum, the site of Britian’s oldest prison! Students got to test out some of the punishments and witness the gruesome end of many of the inmates.

After tea, they spent the evening following the trail of Jack the Ripper, taking in all the sites of the Whitechapel murders.

On the final day of the visit, the group set off to explore some of London’s most famous sites. Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Horse Guards.

The students then boarded for their Thames River Cruise taking in the historic surroundings of our capital, and learning more interesting facts from our tour guide.

After collecting our luggage, the group made its way to Euston and home again to Ruabon.
