For part of the week, you will stay at Alnwick Castle, home of the 7th Duke of Northumberland and site of the first two Harry Potter films. Highlights include a “back door” tour of literary Edinburgh, tea at the Balmoral Hotel where J.K. Rowling penned her final words of the Harry Potter series, and a side excursion to Oxford for essential Tolkien/Lewis-related sites such as The Eagle and Child pub, Magdalen College, and Wolvercote Village.
In London, you’ll enjoy a double-decker bus tour of the city, visit the Tower of London and attend a performance at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. In addition to taking in the sites of London—including the British Museum, The British Library, evensong at Westminster Abbey, and a bankside walk along the Thames—accommodations will be just steps away from famous Kings Cross Station.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a "hybrid" study abroad program. This means that participants will take a semester-long, on-campus course and will travel during Spring Break as part of the class.
