London Religious Studies

Prices from: £82

Adaptable Travel offer exciting and inspiring overnight school trip packages to London, and our Religious Studies London school trips are some of our most popular.

London is the largest city in the UK and one of the most multicultural cities in the world. It boasts vibrant streets where well over 200 languages are spoken and is home to an abundant number of places of worship for different faiths. The religious traditions of Great Britain are mainly Christian, but in a capital city so diverse, other widely practiced religions include Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism and Sikhism; as well as other religious and non-religious beliefs.

Due to London’s diverse range of race, ethnicity and religion, it is often described as “The World in One City”. As many different religions are practised daily, London is one of the most popular destinations for Religious Studies school trips. Students have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of different religious beliefs by exploring churches, temples, mosques, synagogues and gurdwaras, along with various museums. Experiencing places of worship first-hand enables students to gain a greater insight into different religions’ history, values, teachings, and sources of wisdom and authority.

Students can enjoy the London Eye which offers breath-taking views across the landscape, a relaxing Thames River Cruise, a #snapchat opportunity at Madame Tussauds and a delightful evening at a West End Theatre.

We have created a fantastic itinerary for Religious Studies trips to London, however as all of our packages are bespoke, please feel free to let us know of any changes you may prefer based around your exact area of study.

Our experienced team look forward to working with you soon, planning your perfect school trip.

Hotel was too far out at Croydon meaning on the Friday morning we spent ages in traffic on the M25 to get from the hotel at 9am sharp to the National History Museum. This meant we could only visit one theatre and not two.

The timings to get from Wolv to London to do the London Eye were also unrealistic so I had to do a live chat to put the booking back 2 hours as we were still travelling down. This was fine but more realistic timings and a closer hotel would be wanted in the future.

Finally, it wasn't great to have to jump on two different coaches on the Thursday night after the Mama Mia show as this meant ringing the new coach drivers and having to jump on two new coaches we didn't recognise outside of a busy theatre at 10:30pm at night with 85 of us to account for. The air conditioning on the top tier of the double-decker bus also didn't work and this wasn't good due to the hot weather we've been having. No toilet roll was also supplied for the travelling on the coach which was also problematic.
