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.
Trip organiser, history teacher Gemma Bowden who praised the students for their excellent behaviour, enthusiasm and interest in all the aspects of the trip and which will benefit their studies.
