A trip to London is not complete without entering the city walls…..and the Museum of London. This immersive exhibition explores the fascinating role animals have played in shaping the capital. We will be guided through time, from the Roman era through Medieval London and right up to present day, narrated by the beasts themselves. Discover how animals – from lions and elephants, to horses, rats and pigeons – have shaped the city and its beastly history. One of Miss Sophie’s favourite trips!
Explore the home of the Queen’s Crown Jewels and the rooms of Edward I with a fun trail where we will answer quizzes, complete activities, and come home with minds full of facts. We will also get the opportunity to meet characters from history facing a tricky situation. Together we can solve their problems by tackling a series of challenges that can help us further explore the palace. At the Tower of London we will see the exact spot where some of the famous ‘Beasts of London’ once lived.
A trip on the riverboat is an exciting way to explore London, and today we will head to Greenwich by boat. The Maritime Museum is a wonderful way to delve into our past and learn about the explorers such as Nelson, his HMS Victory, and the mystery of the sea. Human identity has been shaped by our relationship with the sea for centuries; through work, play, love, loss, hope, and despair, the ocean has made us who we are, as individuals and societies. The new exhibition ‘Sea Things’ will be a great starting point on our adventures.
