Tudor and Stuart London

Prices from: £82

Home to the Royal family and the capital city of England, London has seen some of the most important events in British history.

These events are brought to life by the rich array of world class museums and historical landmarks on offer that celebrate the city’s 2000 years of history. One area of British history that can be explored in London is the 16th and 17th century which saw the development of the monarchy and parliament, the Protestant Reformation, and the expansion of the British economy and state through overseas trade and colonialism. Students can explore this era by visiting Hampton Court, Shakespeare’s globe theatre and the National Portrait Gallery on a school trip to London.

This was a fantastic tour well balanced in terms of education and entertainment, great meals and plenty of opportunity to explore the city. The Royal National is ideally located, and the hotel responded to our request of rooming boys and girls on separate floors with their teachers.

Overall we had a great time however a few points were really not great.
The choice of pub in Covent Garden: the service was awful and the food was really not up to scratch. We were in a room just for school groups and it was far from being the pub experience that we had hoped for.
The market tour: the tour was very interesting however we learnt very quickly that most of the tour was history based and not in the market itself as tours are not allowed - I would have liked to know this beforehand as our group was in London for the culinary side of things and not the history.
For the cruise and London eye, we wasted time in the line for the information desk as suggested on our coupon, only to find we had to re queue for the tickets and we nearly missed the cruise.
There is no 'coach pick up point' at North terminal Gatwick (there is at the south), the pick up point is at the car drop off point, next to the special assistance desk. Most of the stewards did not speak enough english to be able to help and again time was wasted for nothing.
Wagamamas was great.
The fish and chips in Borough High Street, was more like canteen fish and chips and not the traditional fish and chips we had wanted.
being that i specifically asked for the 'food ' side of things to be given importance we were disappointed with this.
The picnics: on our last day we had all chosen a different sandwich, only to find that the sandwiches left for us were all tuna (noone had chosen this and we had it the day before), we didn't once have fruit juice all week. the boxes of sandwiches were (if at all) badly names and with the amount of groups at the hostel all younsters just helped themselves (left self service in the breakfast room) - anyone could have taken them. we were lucky that on the last day we were able to have 10.
We were originally told that the teachers had 4 single beds in their room, and once the booking and payment made we learnt that that was not possible.
Although I was pleased with many aspects of the tour I do feel that there is much room for improvement, and although the meals would probably have been ok for a young school group this was not our case.

Overall, a very well organised trip with a good diversity of events to respond to the educational needs of students.
The eateries were also good apart from the pub at Covent Garden where we had Fish and Chips. Whilst I am aware that money can made from group bookings at no point have I felt like it is the case, until this restaurant. The portion size was for children and delivered on child sized plates, although the children were 13 and staff well above 13! The fish itself was of poor quality and compared what they were serving to other guests, definitely the chaeper version - it felt like a child's party! The drink was just water and the pudding was a badly heated pre-made apple pie with squirty cream.
They wanted us in and out as quickly as possible although,according to my schedule, we had an hour and an half there.
This was supported by the students feedback that this was the worse place to eat which, considering it was traditional fish and chips, was a shame. I would not go there again, although the location was great.
