  • Children need to have a comfortable backpack to use throughout our visit. 

  • Trainers/sensible shoes must be worn.

In June 2023, Year 4 visited London for an action-packed three days. From visiting the Houses of Parliament, cruising down the River Thames, seeing the crown jewels in the Tower of London, to watching the King's Birthday Parade- Colonel's Review. Lots of great memories were made!
