London Calling! College II Boarders Explore the City


Last weekend, The Mount School York, College II boarders and invited day pupils visited the City of London to take part in a variety of fun and exciting activities. 

Taking advantage of the direct train from York, the girls travelled down to Kings Cross station before riding the tube to the Museum of London. The girls spent several hours learning lots of fascinating facts and hearing iconic tales of the City, ranging from the tragic Great Fire of London to historical women’s rights movements that have helped shape today’s world.

Following the Museum, they walked to St. Pauls Cathedral and took pictures in front of iconic landmarks, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London. Next on their travels was a pit stop by world-renowned, Shakespeare’s Globe, a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, the Elizabethan playhouse in which William Shakespeare wrote his plays. The vibrant and bustling Bankside of the River Thames was home to several street performers, allowing the girls to enjoy some live music as they took in the scenery and explored the city.

The group enjoyed a picnic lunch beside the London Eye, before rushing back to Kings Cross for their train home. With only minutes to spare, the girls boarded the train and arrived back at boarding school at around 9pm, feeling very tired after their busy day.
