Surval Takes on London!

22 June 2024

Last month, our Surval Girls took a trip to London. From Hamilton to Harrods, our girls made wonderful memories that will last a lifetime! We spoke with Olvido from Grade 9 on her experience and what she loved most about the trip. Safe to say, London was hit!


“Our trip to London was amazing and full of great experiences. When we arrived, we started our adventure with some shopping at Selfridges. The store was impressive and had so much to offer. The great atmosphere and vast selection made it the perfect start to our journey. That night, we went to see the musical “Hamilton” at the theatre. The performance was fantastic, with incredible music and a gripping story. After the show, we were ready for a good night’s sleep, feeling excited for the days ahead.


The next day, we visited the British Museum, one of the world’s greatest cultural institutions. We saw the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin Marbles, which were really interesting and gave us insight into ancient civilizations. Each exhibit was a fascinating journey through history. Afterwards, we enjoyed a nice brunch at the Polo Ralph Lauren Café, where the cozy ambiance and delicious food made for a relaxing meal.

In the afternoon, we headed to Horizon 22. The stunning views from the top were breathtaking, offering a panoramic look at London’s iconic skyline. We took in the sights and enjoyed the peacefulness above the bustling city. We then had a refreshing matcha at Joe & The Juice, which was the perfect way to recharge.


Later, we explored Harrods, one of the world’s most famous department stores. It was huge and had a lot of different items, from gourmet foods to high fashion. Wandering through the luxurious halls of Harrods was an experience in itself. Dinner at Sketch was one of the highlights of our trip; the restaurant had a unique vibe with its quirky decor and artistic presentation. The food was excellent, and every dish was a delight. 


After dinner, we walked around Soho and tried the popular chocolate strawberries, which were as delicious as we had heard. The lively streets and vibrant nightlife added to the charm of our evening.


"It was the best trip we’ve ever had, filled with wonderful memories and experiences that we will remember for a lifetime"


On our last day, we dedicated our time to exploring some of London’s most famous landmarks. The London Eye gave us amazing views of the city, and we could see all the way to the horizon. We also visited Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey. Each landmark was impressive and filled with history, making us appreciate the grandeur of London. Throughout the day, we did more shopping, exploring various stores and soaking in the lively atmosphere of the city. London’s energy was infectious, and we enjoyed every moment of it. For dinner, we went to a well-known restaurant near London Bridge, famous for its pasta. The meal was delicious, and the location offered a picturesque backdrop. We took some beautiful pictures with the bridge in the background, capturing memories we will cherish.


In the evening, we met up with our friends to watch “Sister Act” at the theatre. The show was delightful, filled with humor and great music, and it was a perfect end to our trip. During our trip, we learned how to manage our time well, making sure we saw and did as much as possible without feeling rushed. We left London with a deeper appreciation for its rich history, diverse culture, and vibrant energy. It was the best trip we’ve ever had, filled with wonderful memories and experiences that we will remember for a lifetime.”
