Year 5HC’s Epic, Incredible & Phenomenal Trip to London!

May 5, 2023 | Trips, Residential & Enrichment Experiences

Epic, incredible, phenomenal, incomprehensible…just a few words we have used over the past two days to describe our spectacular trip to London.

We have made memories that will last a lifetime as we navigated our way through The National History Museum where we discovered so many wonderful and interesting facts about dinosaurs, mammals and creepy crawlers before exploring and entering an Earthquake simulator!

Next, we took a tour around our capital city and learned many interesting facts about several famous landmarks: Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Marble Arch, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. We also witnessed the changing of the King’s guard and were amazed as the city prepares for the King’s Coronation- a truly historic time to be visiting. The streets were aligned with flags- we were mesmerised.

Then, we ambled through Covent Garden ready for a delicious meal. However, before we arrived, we watched a fabulous street performer and Mrs Shaw volunteered to be his knife throwing apprentice- don’t worry, everyone kept their heads!

After Pizza Express, we walked to the theatre to watch a jaw dropping performance of The Lion King! We began to feel a little sleepy but enjoyed the show nonetheless and were blown away by the costumes, set design and the wonderful performances of all the actors on stage.

On day 2, after filling up on a hearty breakfast. We were incredibly excited to be visiting Harry Potter world and we can say with certainty, it did not disappoint. We were awe struck by the sheer volume of dedication and creativity that went into producing the wizarding world.

It truly has been a magical trip!

On a seperate note, the staff and I would like to say what a pleasure it has been to take the children on such a wonderful trip. They have been impeccably behaved and we are extremely proud of how they have conducted themselves. They are a credit to you all and we hope you all have a restful bank holiday weekend.
