The visit to the Leak Street Tunnel, famous for its street art works, captivated the students with the diversity and creativity of the murals.

Strolls through the picturesque neighborhoods of Notting Hill, with its colorful houses and bustling market, and Camden Market, famous for its alternative atmosphere and eclectic stalls, allowed students to discover varied aspects of London life.

Finally, the excursion to Windsor Castle ended this trip on a royal note, with the added bonus of the famous changing of the guard which the students were able to witness. This stay in London was an invaluable experience for the students of the Simone-Veil college, which is welcomed by the principal, Mr. Ait-Ouaret. The students not only improved their mastery of the English language, but also experienced unique moments of discovery and sharing. This trip will remain engraved in their memory and will undoubtedly have awakened in them a curiosity and a love for British culture.
