Pick-up will be from Queen's Road Coach Stop at 7:45am, for a prompt departure at 8:00am.

Enjoy a drive through the City of London, passing some of the famous old and new buildings, including the Swiss Rhee building, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

Arriving in Kensington, you will have time to visit two museums: the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum (both free entry).

Look at both websites to learn about their contents and plan your day. There is a free indoor picnic area – if you wish you can bring your own picnic lunch without worrying about the weather! There are also several cafes in both museums.

Explore the museums until 3:45 pm before meeting the coach to return home.  You can expect to arrive back at Queens Road at approximately 6:00pm.

The cost for adults is £15, and £7.50 for children. The number of children in total on the trip is limited to 15 so families so book quickly if interested.

Bookings should go through Julie Darsley at Julie.Darsley@admin.cam.ac.uk by 27 April.
