School English Literature Trip to London

Bring the script to life with an English literature school trip to London’s West End!

London’s theatres enjoy a great heritage and world-renowned reputation. They host a wide variety of performances throughout the year. On arrival in London, we can organise a choice of backstage tours, either to the National Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe or Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

An evening meal can be arranged at the Hard Rock Café or Planet Hollywood, followed by an evening theatre performance. And, on the way back to school on the second day, make sure you visit the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. Small group? Why not join forces with the performing arts department to make this trip cross-curricular?
