Visits and Excursions
Brooke House’s excellent location in the heart of England means that our students are able to visit most of the major attractions that the country has to offer. There are two full-day excursions and one half-day excursion
each week included in the cost of the course. Our programme provides a unique blend of educational, cultural and recreational trips and, of course, our students always find a little time to shop for those essential souvenirs, presents and treats. Pre-trip briefings in the classroom ensure that each and every student is aware of the relevance of a particular destination and work sheets and organised tours make sure that our students obtain the fullest possible benefit from the outings. Here are just some of the excursions which our students enjoy every year:
London – Sightseeing (Tower of London, London Bridge, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Whitehall, Downing Street, Horse Guards Parade, Trafalgar Square, The National Gallery, The Mall, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus).
