VICTA returns to our thriving capital city for a weekend of adventure, history and endless opportunities. Meeting on the Friday 19 October, we will initially enjoy a relaxed evening near our accommodation. The second day will see us set out to explore the varied past of the city, visiting Shakespeare’s Globe for a unique tour of the only building in London with a thatched roof, before venturing down the Thames to the Houses of Parliament.

On day three we will visit the Tate Modern Gallery for a touch tour of some of the exhibits, before heading over to Covent Garden to do some semi-independent travel and shopping. Our final morning will see us leave our hotel and travel to Greenwich to visit and walk over the O2 arena at Up @ The O2!

Departure will be at lunchtime after the final activity, from North Greenwich Tube Station. Accommodation, breakfast and all organised activities will be included in the cost. Attendees will be required to bring spending money to cover lunch, dinner and drinks throughout the trip.
