London calling for St Brigid’s students

A TOTAL of 60 science students from Killarney’s St Brigid’s Secondary School travelled to London to visit art, history and science museums as well as taking in some of the city’s famous landmarks.

On the first day the students called to the Natural History Museum in Kensington, the Science Museum and the National Gallery and, on day two, they had a long walk to the Meridian Line and visited the Observatory Planetarium.

They completed the tunnel walk under the Thames and, the same evening, the students enjoyed the longest running West End show, The Mousetrap, in St Martin’s Theatre.
On the third day the students ventured on a cable car across the Thames to North Greenwich and that was followed by a River Clipper boat ride up the Thames to Bankside mooring before they enjoyed a guided tour around the Globe Theatre and attended an hour-long workshop on Hamlet conducted by resident actors.

The Killarney schoolgirls walked the Millennium Footbridge and on to the monument to the great fire where they climbed 311 steps up to the top of the Monument Tower. Thy also visited the Imperial War Museum and dined in Planet Hollywood. In the Novello Theatre they enjoyed a great production of Mama Mia.
Day four saw the students experiencing the London Eye and they got to walk across Westminster Bridge on to Parliament Square, passing Big Ben and Houses of Parliament onto White hall and then Downing Street.

They ventured towards House Guards’ Parade along the mall to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard.

And, of course, no trip to London would have been complete without a shopping trip to Oxford Street.
