Time: Meeting at 1pm
Come and join VICTA for an exciting few days exploring our vibrant capital city of London. We won’t just be visiting landmarks but climbing over them as we take part in ‘Up at the O2’, a walk over the iconic Greenwich dome and concert venue. At its highest point you will be 52 metres above London, but don’t worry, we will have a climb guide with us every step of the way.
Once feet are firmly back on the ground we will head to our hotel which is situated in the vibrant South Bank area to check in and drop-off belongings. In the evening we will head out to explore the Southbank and eat in one of the restaurants in the area (attendees will need to bring spending money to cover their meals and drinks).
The following day it is time to delve into the City’s history with a trip to the world famous Tower of London, full of historical marvels and captivating stories, it is sure to make for a fascinating morning. The attraction has excellent reviews for accessibility and we will be taking part in their descriptive tours of the Jewel House and White Tower, followed by time to explore the rest of the attraction at our leisure.
Our day will be topped off with a visit to Covent Garden to soak up the bustling atmosphere and even squeeze in a spot of shopping. We will then be ready for another meal out (spending money for this will again be required) followed by a good night’s sleep back at the hotel.
After checkout and breakfast in the morning we will enjoy a fun sight-seeing experience on the London Ducks Tours, an amphibious craft which takes you through the streets of London before launching into the River Thames. Departure will be after lunch at around 2pm from Waterloo station.
This is a great opportunity to experience London and enjoy a mixture of history and adventure. Hopefully it will also be a chance to make some new friends and push yourself to achieve something new. If you would like to apply please do so via the form below.
