Visiting the House of Illustration in London

Our Students visiting the House of Illustration. House of Illustration is a new Art Gallery and Educational Space in the Area North of King's Cross Station, close to St. Martin's School of London, with an accessible and stimulating program of Exhibitions, Talks and Events. 
Opened in July 2014 the Gallery is definitely worth visiting. 
Our Students were the first foreign group who took part in a creative Workshop at The House of Illustration. 

Hope to come back soon together in London to the Hous of Illustration.

A short travel diary with 22 Students, 2 teachers of the Art School / IIS "F. Orioli" from Viterbo to London and back

London Stansted Airport: Landed.Traveling by bus to Wimbledon, where the students had to attend the Weekly English Course in C.E.S.
Landing in Wimbledon, when the spring sprouts between houses and gardens, is one of the best things that can happen to a group of stunned italian students with their teachers. 
Things were going well: In the morning students attended to the Course ( later still getting good feedbacks ) and soon after the group met to visit London, led by teachers.
The students near the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey
Reaching the center of London from Wimbledon is easy:  Subway takes only 20 minutes.
London is an Universe, and it wouldn't be possible to tell what the students could saw and experienced in only one, intense and beautiful week. 
We try to  share here only a short selection of the best photos of the week. Enjoy!
