With gorgeous weather all day, Summerfuel students headed in to see some of the iconic sights of London. Students had the chance to witness the changing of the guard’s march up to Buckingham Palace, see Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and hear a bit about Westminster Abbey, all led by official blue badge tour guides. The tour guide on one of our coaches has been giving tours for 30 years and knew all kinds of fascinating details about the creation and changing face of London.
After our walking and bus tour, we spent some time in the Covent Garden Market where students had a chance to get lunch in small groups and look at some of the little shops and stores in the area. Students and staff ate at all kinds of restaurants, from little French bistros, to specialty healthy-focused restaurants, to Nando’s.
Tonight was our annual pub trivia contest, this year hosted by RA Cameron. Some of the categories included questions about Oxford, song lyrics, and more!
Tomorrow is our second excursion: Blenheim Palace. Stay posted here for more updates and pictures!
