Explore one of the world’s most diverse cities, where history and innovation intersect. We’ll experience firsthand some of London’s most famous attractions, including Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, St. James’s Park, Westminster Abbey, and Trafalgar Square. Our day in the capital city will also include a distinctly cultural experience – either afternoon tea (fall) or a West End theatre performance (spring).
Discover the vibrant city of Bath, a wellness destination since Roman times. Our visit centers on the Roman Baths, where we’ll walk through one of the world’s best-preserved ancient spas. We’ll also tour Bath Abbey and explore the city’s Georgian architecture before you enjoy free time for your own adventures.
Ranked one of England’s most beautiful cities, Oxford’s defining feature is its historic and world-renowned university. The University of Oxford has grown from its medieval roots into a sprawling system of 39 colleges and more than 25,000 students. As we stroll through some of the university’s best-known landmarks, we’ll discover its Gothic architecture, its inspiring history, and its modern-day impact.
Home to Windsor Castle, the historic town of Windsor is known for its cobbled streets, stunning parks, specialty boutiques, and Eton College, one of England’s most prestigious institutions. We’ll spend the day exploring some of Windsor’s most historic sites, including the royal residence of Windsor Castle and St George’s Chapel.
Experience Welsh history, identity, and culture during our visit to Cardiff, the capital and largest city of Wales. We’ll stroll through Cardiff Riverside Market, tasting traditional Welsh cakes while enjoying the views from the bank of the River Taff. Our day also includes a visit to Cardiff Castle, an impressive stronghold located right in the city that boasts nearly 2,000 years of history.

Hosted in London, this dinner is a great opportunity to meet other study abroad students, share your own holiday traditions while creating new ones, and recharge before entering the final weeks of teaching in the fall semester.

This classic walk – one of the finest coastal walks in England – affords stunning views of white cliffs and the renowned Beachy Head before ending in the seafront town of Eastbourne.
