Each week there is one full day excursion outside the city to visit other famous places in England. In addition students have 5 half day excursions every week. (There is also one free day to choose an optional excursion).* On Sundays there is the option to have full-day excursions to beautiful locations such as Norwich, Stonehenge, Winchester and Bletchley Park (as well as the locations on the list below)*
