Law and Criminology Tour the Capital

30 students from our Criminology and Law departments had a fantastic three day trip down to London as part of their studies this term.

The visit started with some sightseeing around the capital before heading to the Supreme Court for a tour, where they were able to get an insight into the day-to-day workings of the courts. The group then headed out for a meal before hitting the West End to watch an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s court room-based thriller “A Witness for the Prosecution”.

On the second day, the students enjoyed a visit to the Natural History Museum, did a spot of shopping on Oxford Street and ate in TGI Friday’s in Leicester Square before taking the Jack the Ripper Tour. The evening tour took them through the narrow alleyways of the East End, transporting them back to the days of Jack the Ripper. They were able to learn more about one of Britain’s most infamous serial killers from subject experts.

On the final day there was a bit more time for fun, with a trip to Camden Market before heading home on the train. A fantastic time was had by all!
