Sneak peek at Scene Around the World: London
Nick Weido | Thursday, October 14, 2010
Truly “The World’s City,” London is a place like no else, from its glittering skyscrapers to the majesty of Parliament, London takes the cake as one of the world’s most beautiful cities, and Notre Dame students have taken full advantage of all the city has to offer.
The London Undergraduate Program places us at the intersection daytime academics and nightlife. Our time has been characterized by trips to the Continent (aka the rest of Europe) and exploring, or should I say crawling, through London’s famous pub scene. I have spent entire days exploring Trafalgar Square, sifting through the National Gallery or grabbing a pint at the Dovetail with my professor. One of the most spectacular nights I spent on the South Bank watching fireworks explode over the River Thames.
