Year-10 pupils from LDB school went on a school trip to England on May 22nd.
Day 1: It was raining when we left Ancemont at 4:00 AM to drive to Calais. We caught an early Shuttle and drove to Hastings.
We picniced on the beach as the weather was really lovely. Jérémy R. took a dive in the Channel, how brave of him!
Then we visited Hastings castle or what's left of it and watched a video in French.
We then drove to Catford to meet our host families.
Day 2: We started with a sightseeing tour of the capital. Our guide was Anita.
We then had a picnic in Hyde Park near the Serpentine. It was sunny and warm. In the afternoon we visited the Tower of London and saw the Crown's Jewels. Henry VIII's armour in the White Tower was quite a sight! We then walked on Tower Bridge.
After visiting the Tower, we had a long nice walk along the Thames up to Victoria embankment.
Day 3: We went to see all the touristy things: Big Ben, the Parliament, Westminster abbey, 10 Downing street, Horse Guards, Trafalgar square, the Mall and finally Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guard.
We had a picnic with the squirrels in Saint James's Park afterwards. We still enjoyed sunny weather, lucky us!
