London - Art & Design

5 days 4 nights

An insight into art & design in London

Over the past few years, London has gone through massive regeneration with ionic buildings such as the Gherkin and the Shard being constructed.  This is an exciting and stimulating tour visiting some of our iconic  galleries and buildings.

Day 1

Travel to London arriving in the afternoon to check in to your accommodation. Depending upon your arrival time you will stop en route at a suitable venue in the afternoon.  After unpacking an early evening meal, take a ride on the London Eye which is a great way to introduce your students to London.

Day 2

After yesterday’s long journey travel to the Stratford to the Olympic Village and a tour with a Blue Badge Guide who will explain how the village was designed, its ethos and future.  Afterwards there will be time to visit the adjacent Westfield Shopping Centre for those shopaholics in the group.   In the evening enjoy an early dinner at a local restaurant before heading off to see a show.

Day 3

In the morning visit the art galleries of your choice and if you are wanting to see a current exhibition this will be factored into the day’s activities.  In the evening enjoy an early dinner at a local restaurant before heading off to see a show.  Alternatively visit the V&A one of London’s iconic museums and then head off to Green Park for a picnic lunch before a visit to the Serpentine Museum one of London’s most innovative and popular art galleries.  Then walk through Hyde Park to meet our coach and travel to Camden Town.

This evening we visit the theatre to see a West End show of your choice.

Day 4

In the morning visit the Shard and travel up to the viewing gallery.  The View from The Shard offers a unique education experience – it is the only place where students can see the entire city at once; both old and new! Two high speed kaleidoscopic lifts will transport your class to the viewing platforms on Level 69 and Level 72 where you can encourage your student’s fascination with the history of London and enjoy the unparalleled 360 degree views.  In the afternoon visit the Museum of Brands or the Design Centre before heading back to your accommodation to pack.

Day 5

Today we sadly wave goodbye to London and head home.
