Samuel Johnson once said, “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford.” We can’t help but agree. For centuries, this city on the Thames has stood as an unmatched capital of culture. Life here is rich in history but remarkably cutting-edge. We’ll explore the past through famed sites such as the Tower of London, St Paul’s, the Imperial War Rooms and Westminster Abby, then catch up with the artistic present in the Tate Modern, the Bankside and Southbank.
The West End opens our eyes to today’s top theatre, complete with backstage experiences, engaging workshops and entrancing performances. The capital’s countless specialist museums and galleries mean we can focus your program to meet your academic pursuits. And, the vibrant design scene coupled with visits to open-air markets and colourful Shoreditch street art, a visit to London will leave your students inspired and exhilarated.
With first-class museums, an outstanding and diverse arts scene, brilliant architecture and some engaging hands-on activities, you’ll discover that London never ceases to impress—and that Johnson had it exactly right.
With so much to see, so much to do, London is one of those destinations that can hold a visitor’s sway for months, if not years. As etr has been operating customized student learning programs in the capital since 1989, we can make sure you get the most out of the time you have.
