London is home to the UK's most renowned galleries and museums; great sporting venues, the renowned West End theatres and a vast array of world famous sights and attractions. You and your students will have the chance to visit them as well as key religious sites and to take part in specialist educational programmes, which will all provide new experiences that will stimulate and inspire them, such as:
