Make friends while exploring the UK

Each year our Loughborough Students’ Union (LSU) organise a variety of trips to different places in the UK – giving you the exciting opportunity to see more of the UK, learn more about our history, and meet lots of new friends.

The UK has such a rich heritage that it would be a shame not to explore it while you’re here. In the past, LSU have organised trips to:

Stonehenge

A prehistoric monument dating back to 3000 BC – 2000 BC, Stonehenge is a ring of standing stones each standing around 13 feet high.

Bath

Located in the South-West of England, Bath is renowned for the roman-built baths and has a long history.

Stratford-upon-Avon

The birth place of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is located in the West-Midlands.

Oxford

Poet Matthew Arnold famously referred to Oxford as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ – and once you’ve seen the medieval architecture for yourself you’ll understand why.

Edinburgh

An overnight trip to Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. Edinburgh has a rich history with lots of fantastic cultural attractions.

Manchester

Visit the famous Christmas market and go on a walking tour of the city, the third most visited city in the UK after London and Edinburgh.

London

In the past, the trip has included a tour of Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland and a theatre show. London is the capital city of England.

Liverpool

Located in the North-West of England, Liverpool is the birthplace of The Beatles and was also nominated the European Capital of Culture.

Cardiff

A trip to Cardiff - the capital city of Wales. It is the largest city in Wales and home to Cardiff Castle.

York

A historic walled city in North Yorkshire, in the past students have visited York dungeons.

LSU are always arranging trips to different places in the UK, and their Facebook page is great for seeing more photos and learning a bit more about the past trips they've organised.
