Activities and Excursions
Bucksmore London’s timetable is planned and organised by a dedicated Activity Manager, who is responsible for choosing and coordinating weekly activities and excursions. One of the key responsibilities of an Activity Manager is to respond to student requests and ensure that all students have a fantastic time during their stay.
Thanks to the course’s central London location, there will be at least seven half-day visits to the city’s most famous landmarks, museums and attractions, including:
West End Musical
Every two weeks there will be a visit to a London musical. Previous theatre visits include Wicked, The Lion King and Les Miserables.
The Queen’s London residence and one of the most famous buildings in London.
A museum with special effects, rides and live actors that tells the dark side of London’s history.
Oxford Street & Soho
A chance to do some shopping in famous shops such as Hamleys, M&M World, Niketown and Primark’s flagship store.
In addition to the cultural visits in and around London, one day per week will see students going outside of London:
On a tour of the city, students will see land-marks such as Carfax Tower, Bodleian Library, Christ Church Cathedral, and the ‘Bridge of Sighs’ and many Oxford University Colleges.
Always a student favourite! Thorpe Park is one of Europe’s biggest and most exciting theme parks in Europe, with seven roller-coasters and five water rides.
This world-famous university city is a place of scenic beauty. Students marvel at picturesque college buildings while punting down the river, before navigating their way through Cambridge’s historic streets.
