Ohio Northern Department of Art and Design to Host London Tour
History, fine art and cultural exploration will combine during an eight-day London tour, hosted by Ohio Northern University's department of art and design and scheduled for May 26 through June 3.
Organized through EF Educational Tours by Brit Rowe, chair and assistant professor of art and design, the tour is open to ONU students, alumni and the community. "This is an exciting adventure," Rowe said. "It is a chance to see the sites and experience the culture and history first-hand.
"We will visit St. Paul's Cathedral, Trafalgar Square and London's South Bank for views of the famous Tower of London and London Bridge," Rowe said. "While in England, we will also visit Stonehenge and Bath, Windsor Castle and Canterbury and take a Dickensian walking tour. We also will enjoy a theatre performance at London's West End."
According to Rowe, travelers may choose guided tours, optional excursions or spend their time as they please. "Travelers may choose lots of time on their own or schedule tours with a guide," he said.
The cost of the tour is about $2,500 per person, which includes round-trip airfare, hotel, all breakfasts and dinners, museum passes, transportation and transfers, and trip insurance. Optional excursions are extra. Students can receive course credit, but it is not a requirement to travel. Eligible students may receive financial aid to help with these costs.
