We will have full-day trips every weekend plus two afternoons per week at our Bristol campus. We will explore the fascinating city of Bristol and see it through the eyes of a local; we'll visit Clifton Suspension Bridge, M Shed Bristol, Gothic Wells Cathedral (film set for the Huntsman) and Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. We will take a trip to Cheddar Gorge, where the famous cheese is produced and explore the fascinating landscape.   We will take you on great adventures where your physical skills will be pushed to the limit with rock-climbing, caving, paddleboarding and kayaking. 
 

Weekend full day trips 

Our weekend excursions will take you to London every other week, and when we are not in London, we will go to Oxford, Windsor or Jane Austin's Bath. You will be able to enjoy a fossil hunt in the charming town of Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast and indulge in some mega-fun times at Dorset Adventure park.  Sundays are your chance to unwind; we will take you to the UK's less well-known places of outstanding natural beauty. We'll go teambuilding in Mendip Hills or explore Somerset - a county full of historical National Trust manor houses with sprawling manicured gardens.
