Students studying Humanities based subjects recently enjoyed a fantastic trip to London to bring their studies to life and experience some of the culture of the capital. The photo gallery below shares more.
The trip saw students studying subjects including History, Law and Politics enjoy a range of experiences including a trip to Hampton Court Palace, an original Tutor palace begun by Cardinal Wolsley in the early 16thcentury. The palace has a fascinating history in relation to Henry VIII who took all of his six wives there.
On day two the group enjoyed visits based on their specialisms, with Politics and Law students meeting Thelma Walker MP at the Houses of Parliament to take part in a special workshop with Thelma and experience a tour of Parliament. History and Classics students visited the British Museum and took a look at exhibitions including ‘Historical Baggage’. The group also enjoyed some typical London must sees, including a performance of Les Misérables, a meal at the Hard Rock Café and a visit to the London Eye. On the final day the group explored the Tower of London.
Claire Forrest, Head of Humanities comments: “This was an action packed trip and the group visited some unique and fascinating landmarks and enjoyed some fantastic experiences, including a chance to meet a Huddersfield MP in the Houses of Parliament and see the world of politics in action! The trip helped to challenge and extend the knowledge of our students. The group gained a different perspective on their studies and even had some time to explore the capital’s culture with their fellow classmates.”
