U6 Tower Of London Visit

On 8 March the U6 history group travelled to London to visit the Tower of London as part of their A-level studies on the Wars of the Roses. The day started with an ice cream by the river and a tour of the tower, seeing the locations where a number of events that they have studied in lessons actually happened.

Students were particularly fascinated by the graffiti left by various prisoners over the centuries and enjoyed viewing the impressive crown jewels.

Following lunch the group visited the British Museum, viewing everything from ancient Egyptian mummies to hoards of medieval gold coins. The day finished in a nice warm coffee shop on Oxford Street before the students headed home having had a very interesting and enjoyable day, re-enforcing their class taught history knowledge.
