A group of historians from Cheddar’s secondary school followed in the footsteps of the greats during a trip to London.
Year 10 students from The Kings Of Wessex School, in Station Road, paid a trip to the some of London’s main historical attractions.
They learned about the Tudor monarchs, Henry VIII and Elizabeth I as well as learn about the victims of the serial killer, Jack the Ripper.
The trip then took the youngsters on a short walk to the HMS Belfast, past the Clink Street Prison, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Globe Theatre.
The final destination of the whistle-stop tour around London was the Imperial War Museum to look at the World War One exhibits ahead of the centenary next week.
