WWW in the Literature Decorum – London

During the four days of Week Without Walls, the students who participated In The Literature Decorum-London trip had a successful journey which was inspiring and motivating from an educational and cultural perspective.

The educational component offered insightful and creative study of both authors: William Shakespeare and Jane Austen consisting of visits to their home towns and museums enabling students to savour the experience of the author’s life and opening the eyes of the students as to why the works of these authors are part of the English literature cannon. Additionally students visited Christ Church College in Oxford where Fleming, Auden and Percy studied and wrote their poems. Also, it was grand for students to see and experience the 16th century stone staircase which served as film set for Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone.

The cultural perspective enabled students to visit famous London landmarks such as: Madame Tussauds Museum, Sherlock Holmes Museum, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Oxford Circus and Marble Arch, making their acquaintance with London stunning. In that manner, students toured, observed and learned, falling in love with London and some leaving their hearts there.
