Trips & Activities
We know you want to make the most of all the cultural opportunities that exist on your doorstep in London, so we’ve created a packed timetable full of activities.
A typical day will start with a cooked breakfast in the accommodation, before you go off to your classes and then complete your Independent Study work.
At lunchtime, you’ll be free to explore the vibrant Southbank and Bankside areas with your friends, and enjoy the variety of food on offer. We recommend you check out the buzzing Borough Market, often referred to by Londoners as ‘London’s larder’; a true foodie’s dream! There’s been a food market on this site since at least the 12th century, but nowadays Londoners flock there in their lunch break for some delicious street food. If you get there early enough, you might be able to jump the queue for London’s current favourite lunch trend: fresh pasta at Padella.
The afternoons are varied: there’ll be a mixture of free time, fun London activities such as shopping on Oxford Street or a visit to the Tate Modern, your Hero session, and our Masterclasses, which you can read more about here.
We’ll be going on a day trip to Oxford, home of the world-famous Oxford University, where you’ll have the chance to visit the ancient colleges and explore the ‘city of dreaming spires’. Finally, we’ll take a trip to Brighton on the south coast. Brighton is a classic British seaside resort, and was the favourite retreat of Queen Victoria. While we’re there, we’ll visit her palace, the Royal Pavilion, and soak in the eclectic character of Brighton’s shops and Pier.
For dinner, we’ll be going out to eat together in London restaurants, and then (if you’re not completely tired out!) we have a packed schedule of evening activities. Examples include experiencing a Shakespeare play in the original Globe Theatre, exploring London’s famous markets in Shoreditch and Portabello Road, playing sports in Hyde Park, and our very own London Scholastica Talent Show!
Check out the timetable below for an idea of what you’ll be getting up to on the summer school, although you should note that this is subject to change.
