I take my students into London 3 times a week, usually Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Some of the places we visit are: Buckingham palace, St. James park, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, M&M World, Hamleys toy store, Fortnum and Masons, Covent Garden, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Borough Market, Camden Market, Thames Clipper boat tour, The British museum etc. During the evening after dinner, we watch films or play games.
