London, UK

For readers of British fiction, drama, and poetry, London is the hub of British civilization itself. London is the city of Shakespeare and Virginia Woolf, and more recently of Zadie Smith, David Hare, and Neil Gaiman. Students will experience London as a truly international city, representing both the landmarks of English tradition as well as infusions of cultures from all over the world

On this program, students will take outings to the many museums and important architectural sites that London has to offer, such as the Tate, National Gallery, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Globe Theater, Keats' House and the British Library. They will also have the chance to take outings to London neighborhoods like Southwark, Hampstead, and the parks of Westminster. Outside of London, students will get to take a day trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon, where they will see Shakespeare’s birthplace and a performance by the Royal Shakespeare Company; and a full weekend trip to Wessex, which has a number of literary connections. This latter trip will include stops in Bath, Glastonbury, Sherborne, Avebury, Old Sarum and Stonehenge.
