I feel that when you get to properly experience parts of history it makes it a whole different concept. It’s much harder to remember everything you read in a text book, but being able to walk around and see the actual buildings that some of the key figures we learn about were once in, makes specific parts of what we learn so much more memorable. I find that I’m a very visual and auditory learner and I like to ask questions, the trip was a perfect way to incorporate all of this. The cafe was really nice too…
The Tower Of London gave me a great insight into what it was like to live in that time, especially in relation to the Tudors. It really puts the things we learn in perspective. The best part was to be able to see the Crown Jewels! And the film set was awesome – Holmes & Watson (new Sherlock film).
