Trips and visits
There will be several day trips included in the International Summer School package. These trips will give you a chance to immerse yourself in the variety of culture throughout the UK.
Your chance to visit the iconic city that you’ve seen in movies and read about in books.
We’ll start in the area around The Tower of London, where you can explore this historic landmark and famous Tower Bridge. Afterwards, take a boat up the River Thames to Westminster and take a walking tour where you’ll see Big Ben, the House of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.
You’ll end the day with an option to visit the British Museum or shop ‘til you drop on Oxford Street!
There’s simply too much to see in London, and if you wish you can stay overnight after the tour so you can discover more for yourself. It’s only one hour and 20 minutes away from Birmingham!
Jane Austen, Roman hot springs, palatial Georgian architecture: with more museums per square mile than any other English city you can choose from the Fashion Museum, No 1 Royal Crescent or Holburne Museum.
The Romans took advantage of the area’s natural hot springs by building the majestic Roman Baths, now a UNESCO heritage site. You can experience the mineral-rich waters for yourself at Thermae Bath Spa - don’t miss the spectacular views of the city from the rooftop pool.
A place of extraordinary cultural wealth, York is a beautifully preserved medieval city. Step 2,000 years into the past as you wander the Gothic halls of York Minster Cathedral, delve into the city’s Viking past, or explore history of a different kind at the National Railway Museum.
Trace the footsteps of William the Conqueror and enjoy mesmerising views from Clifford’s Tower, or dip into the eclectic array of independent boutiques nestled in the postcard-pretty 13th century timber buildings of The Shambles - York’s most beautiful street.
