Earlscliffe offers day trips on Wednesdays and Sundays, half-day visits to Ashford Designer Outlet or Folkestone on Saturday afternoons, and evening bowling, laser tag or cinema trips. Earlscliffe is well-located, within comfortable travelling distance of London and the many cultural destinations in Kent and Sussex. All trips are supervised and students are given a pre-trip briefing.
An Earlscliffe highlight is our weekly trip to London (Capital Wednesday™) when over the course of the summer we visit many of the following famous London landmarks: the Tate Modern; the London Dungeon; the London Eye; the Natural History Museum; St Paul’s Cathedral; the Tower of London; the V&A; the British Museum and Buckingham Palace. On Capital Wednesdays™ we use the direct high-speed train from nearby Folkestone Central station which has a journey time of 55 minutes. Our Mini-MBA™ students also visit the Bank of England Museum. Uni-Prep students will also visit universities in London and Oxford.
On Sundays we may visit: the world-famous cathedral city of Canterbury and take a river boat tour; Leeds Castle and Bluewater shopping centre; Thorpe Park theme park, Margate and Dreamland; ice-skating and Hastings, including Adventure Golf.
One of our day trips is to an outdoor activities centre for mountain biking, den-building and other team-bonding exercises. Students will be given some free time in small groups on trips.
