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.
