The Cambridge Matignon School
The Cambridge Matignon School Photo - This February, Matignon and Arlington High School had an amazing opportunity to visit one of the worldâ's most beautiful cities, London, England! Not only did we have so much fun, we also learned a great deal of British history. We saw many famous sights throughout London, took many incredible excursions, ate at culturally diverse restaurants, and saw three spectacular theatre productions. I have always had an obsession with London and seeing these places and hearing the history was very exciting. Seeing the famous sites that I have only seen in movies and books was surreal. None of us could stop snapping pictures. Big Ben, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, and Tower Bridge were larger than life. We also visited Kensington Palace where Princess Diana lived, the Tower of London which houses the crowned jewels, Saint Paulâ's Cathedral, Prince Albert Memorial, and Trafalgar Square. Besides its famous lions and Lord Nelsonâ's column, Trafalgar Square has a statute of George Washington. I found it interesting that because George Washington had vowed to never step on English soil again, the statute was placed on soil shipped from Mount Vernon in order to honor his wish. We also visited the British Museum that houses the Rosetta Stone, the key to deciphering hieroglyphics, as well as the Tate Modern containing many unique pieces of modern art. And of course we shopped at Harrods, one of the largest department stores in the world! Harrods has everything from top designers to a spectacular food emporium carrying everything from fresh meats and seafood to fine teas, chocolates, and desserts. Our trip would not have been complete without a ride on the London Eye, a huge ferris wheel-like structure with glass observation rooms and an incredible view of London. Even learning how to navigate through the London Tube (subway) system was fun as there were constant reminders to âœmind the gapâ" between the train and the platform. That phrase is so popular that some of us even purchased âœmind the gapâ" tee shirts. *Excursions* Our motor coach excursions out of London took us to Windsor Castle where the Queen resides when she is not at Buckingham Palace. I saw someone walking a corgi on the castle grounds. Who knows, it might have been the Queenâ's royal pooch. We also visited the mysterious, 5,000 year old Stonehenge. Although no one knows for sure, some believe that it may have been a religious temple, an astronomical clock, or a Bronze Age burial ground. Along with Stonehenge, we explored Bath, a beautiful city dating back to the first century AD when it was built by the Romans. The Romans built baths using the only thermal springs that exist in the UK. Stratford Upon-Avon was yet another charming town. We visited William Shakespeareâ's home and the cottage of his wife, Anne Hathaway. One of my favorite places we toured was Oxford University, one of the oldest universities in the world. Did you know that you could earn an undergraduate degree at Oxford in only 3 years? Thereafter, you can obtain your Masterâ's by just paying a fee of about $50 a year! What a great deal if you are lucky enough to get in. Among its famous graduates are Bill Clinton and C. S. Lewis, the author of the Chronicles of Narnia. The benefit to having tour guides is that you learn the history behind all the places you visit. I will never forget the story of King Henry VIIIâ's six wives and what happened to them with the trick our tour guide taught us; divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. I have been studying medieval history and Shakespeare this year and it was really cool to connect what I have learned to places that I have seen. We also learned some cool fun facts. Have you ever heard the expression âœsaved by the bellâ"? Well, it originated hundreds of years ago when people were accidentally buried alive. To solve the problem, a string would be tied to the finger of the deceased. A bell would be on the end above ground and if the person was still alive, he/she would move their finger and be well, saved by the bell. If you are a Harry Potter fan like I am, you would have enjoyed walking over Millennium Bridge that was destroyed by death eaters in the fifth movie, seeing the front of the building that was used as Gringotts Bank, and seeing the building in Oxford where the famous Great Hall dining scenes were filmed. Each night we dined at different restaurants. We were exposed to many different cuisines from Turkish to French to traditional English food like fish and chips. We even ate at a restaurant called Wagamama, which serves noodles and other Asian food. The only ones in the United States are found right here in Massachusetts. Some of us just could not resist a burger at the world famous original Hard Rock Café. Although some of us were a bit picky, it was cool to try new types of food from all over the world. *Theatre* One of the major highlights of our trip was going to the theatre. We saw three amazing plays: Sister Act, The 39 Steps, and Wicked. They were definitely very memorable, and we all really enjoyed them. We also had a tour of the Theatre Royal at Drury Lane, the oldest theatre in the world and were the Queen attends plays. Apparently, the theatre is haunted and several people claim that they have seen a ghost walking through one of the walls. When the wall was torn open a few years ago, a manâ's skeleton was found inside. To complete our theatre education, we attended a workshop at Shakespeareâ's Globe Theatre. There we learned about plays during the time of Shakespeare. *Appreciation* One of the nice things about school trips is that everyone really gets a chance to know each other better and make new friends. Our chaperones, including Mrs. Dâ'Angelo, Ms. Foley, and Ms. Rad were really great. I especially want to thank Ms. Rad for putting this fun and educational trip together. It was nice spending time with everyone in a non-school setting. Overall, I think I speak for my classmates when I say that we all had a blast in London. It was an amazing experience and I wish we could do it all over again. Article written by Julia Capano (Class of 2013)
