This trip far exceed our expectations! The variety of theater experiences; the presentations educating us on genres, writers, and actors; and the seats obtained truly put this trip in a category of its own. Incredible! — Go Learn London Traveler, 2016
Travel with us to the world's most exciting and prolific theatre city, London. We'll see remarkable plays from great seats and talk about them before and afterwards. We'll also visit great sights together – Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, the Tate Art Gallery, and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, to name but a few. And we'll take a day trip to the ancient university town of Oxford. You'll be able to shop the wares of Portobello Road, sample the gourmet food at Borough Market and gaze at the mercantile splendors of Harrods. What a jolly good time!
Experience ten days in London that you will cherish for the rest of your life. London is not just the capital of the United Kingdom; it is the beating heart of world culture. The most cosmopolitan city on earth, London offers dazzling displays of art, theatre, cuisine, and commerce from all over the globe, and you will sample it all. But London is also steeped in its own fascinating history, its own unique charm and glorious pageantry, and you'll dive headfirst into that, too. From the gastronomic glories of high tea in Oxford to the gothic splendor of Westminster Abbey, from a privately arranged tour of Middle Temple Hall by day to the sophistication of cutting edge British theatre by night, you will have a truly unforgettable time.
Your guides are Professor Tim Slover (PhD, Modern British Drama) and Jane England (MSc, London School of Economics), both of the University of Utah Dept. of Theatre. They have been opening people's minds to London for twenty years and are thrilled to team up with Go Learn to create this trip which will focus on the crown jewel of London: its world class theatre. Drama is Jane's and Tim's area of professional expertise, but this dynamic duo also knows both the greatest hits of London and its hidden secrets. So whether it will be your first time in the city they call their second home or your fiftieth, get ready to discover afresh major attractions—and some special, out-of-the-way places, too.
Your London on Stage experience begins before you pack your bags. Tim and Jane will present specially prepared pre-trip sessions on the history and culture of England, British Theatre, and Shakespeare. Don't worry: they know how to make it fun (sometimes maybe even a little silly!).
