London. A city likely to stir images of well-known landmarks like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. But it’s also known for its unique culture, evolving history, and captivating sights. Oh, and let’s not forget the perfectly fried fish and chips at a traditional English pub. Sound good? Then come along with Mid-State to London where you’ll have the chance to visit what truly is a multicultural world city! You'll begin with just two class meetings that set the stage for a ten-day visit. Course assignments will give you the chance to prepare for the trip and reflect on a learning experience like no other.

We start in London, where you’ll hop on the Tube and check out the best the city has to offer. After learning about its infamous past, you’ll see the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London, stroll by where the Queen lives at Buckingham Palace, visit the site of coronations and royal weddings at Westminster Abbey, take in the massive dome at St. Paul’s Cathedral, and more.

Then, it’s time for a couple of day-trips to check out Stonehenge, a famously prehistoric stone monument that rises imperiously from Salisbury Plain, the city of Bath to discover this gorgeous 18th-century city’s Roman Baths and stunning honey-colored Georgian architecture, and the town of Windsor and its impressive Windsor Castle, one of the Queen's official royal residences and the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world.  Finally, yes, time will be available in the itinerary for you to individually explore, shop, or just relax while you take in the sights.

This trip is limited to 16 participants.
