I like the spirit of this great London which I feel around me. Who but a coward would pass his whole life in hamlets; and for ever abandon his faculties to the eating rust of obscurity? — Charlotte Brontë

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 sites together – Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, 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!

Tour Overview

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.

Please note: we average 5 miles of walking per day.

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 revealing the glories of London to people for twenty years and are thrilled to team with Go Learn for this trip which focuses on the city’s crown jewel: its world class theatre. You’ll see phenomenal, mind-stretching plays, the productions on the “must-see” list of discerning London theatre aficionados. 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 everything you’ll need to know to prepare for this trip of a lifetime.
