Residential study programs for 14-18 year olds in Cambridge, UK.
Spring 2019: Day 11
Today has been a great day exploring the best museums London has to offer. We woke up bright and early to have breakfast in Reach Hall, before traveling into the centre of London. We spent the morning in the Natural History Museum, a beautiful museum built in 1873. Our students visited exhibitions where they could see the amazing Whale skeleton in the main hall, get involved in the interactive human biology exhibit and see a T-rex up close! It was incredibly interesting, particularly as many of our students are so interested in the sciences. After a busy morning exploring the museums, the students had time to explore a beautiful part of London in South Kensington in the 18C sunshine, before regrouping in order to go to the Science Museum. The Science Museum was founded in 1857 and today is one of the city’s major tourist attractions, attracting 3.3 million visitors annually. Although they are doing some renovations to major exhibits at the moment, there is still plenty to see and do. After a busy day in London, we departed back to Cambridge where we had some yummy dinner and then some students also took part in mock interviews. All our students will have their final subject classes tomorrow morning – we can’t believe the program is coming to a close already!
