Travel & Tourism student trips to London
London is one of the most important destinations in the world, attracting around 15 million overseas visitors each year, not to mention millions more domestic tourists.
On an Equity educational trip to London, students learn what makes the British capital so attractive. They experience some of the key attractions, learning about the hospitality, catering, marketing and health and safety efforts required to maintain the city’s reputation as a premier destination.
There are a selection of excursions available, allowing each college or university trip to be tailored to their specific study requirements.
A walking tour of the Olympic site explores the effect the Games have had on the area, and the potential legacy impact on London’s tourism. Going up in the London Eye not only showcases its most popular paid attraction, it is a superb viewing platform to gain an overview of the city’s other main sites. While at Madame Tussauds, students observe how a major tourist attraction operates on a daily basis.
