Learning in the Capital

London school trips have a wealth of riches to explore, from Europe’s tallest building to the seat of British government. Many of the nation’s most important art collections are housed in the capital along with the nation’s leading museums such as the Imperial War, National Portrait and the hugely influential and important Natural History Museum.

London has also played a large part in shaping contemporary culture through the ages and was considered the fashion and music capital of the world in the 1960’s. Today London is still producing a large array of sporting, music, and movie stars and the glittering West End is the pinnacle of British theatre.
