CHILDREN enjoyed a memorable two day trip to London.

Year 6 pupils from the Grange Community Nursery and Primary School in Winsford set off to visit the sights of the capital city on Thursday.

Becky Ward, who accompanied the children, said: "They left school at 6.30am, full of excitement and anticipation. For many of them it was their first time on a train which added to the enjoyment of the trip,

"First stop were the Houses of Parliament. After an insightful tour of the magnificent building, they had the honour of meeting their local MP Antoinette Sandbach and ask her questions about her role and their community.

"They took in all of the major London sights. It will certainly be a trip that the children will never forget!"

The pupils walked to a special Aladdin dance class which prepared them for the magical performance of Aladdin that they watched that evening.

"The children were mesmerised and overwhelmed by Leicester Square and the flamboyant atmosphere and scenery inside the Prince Edward Theatre," said Becky.

"The second day brought even more new and exciting experiences as they explored the Tower of London and admired the beautiful Crown Jewels, took in a bird’s eye view of the city from the top of the London Eye, enjoyed a relaxing and educational cruise down the famous River Thames and ended their London adventure with a trip to the London Sea Life Centre."
