Classrooms in the Air

This week, in line with our autumn “Transport” theme, PLACE families visited London to experience some modes of transport on the river Thames and to learn something of the history of the waterway that connects so many of the City’s great landmarks.

Adding another dimension to our visit, we took a trip on  the London Eye for a completely unique view of London with fascinating talks from our guides: Arni and Sarah.


Classroom in the air – aboard the Eye with our wonderful guide. Thanks Arni for a great session!



Approaching the Eye from the river – iconic red London buses arriving right on cue.

Below are some of the landmarks spotted during our river trip – can you name them all?
