Palace of Westminster trip

On the final day of term Mr Williams and Miss Pike took several A-level History students to the Palace of Westminster. After a short trip by tube and some free time around Covent Garden the students  took a walk down the Strand, through Trafalgar Square, along Whitehall (to see if any progress was being made at Downing Street) and then into the education centre at the base of the Victoria Tower.

After a short film in the 360  classroom students were given a guided tour of the House of Lords chamber and the House of Commons. Then some time was spent in Westminster Hall built originally in the 11th century. A true walk through history.
