British Culture Study Tour (2020) – cancelled.
As we all attempt to adjust to the effects the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is having on our everyday lives, we at Newbold have had to make some tough decisions.
Unfortunately, this includes our decision to cancel the upcoming 2020 British Culture Study Tour this year.
Given the government-advised travel restrictions currently in place in the UK and around the world, the disruption to the flight and travel industry, and the level of global uncertainty we are all operating under, we do not believe that it is viable to go ahead with the programme this year.
We apologise for the inconvenience this causes, but as always, the health and wellbeing of our students and the wider community is at the heart of every decision we make.
For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to help.

- Meandering across the white cliffs of Dover and visiting the historic Dover Castle
- Watching a classic west end show in the heart of London

Who the Study Tour is for
Our tour is aimed at high-school students. Participants must be aged between 16-20 years old, and have English proficiency of B2 or higher.
Where you stay, what you eat, how you get here
Whilst on this tour you will be invited to stay in our Halls of Residence or in designated rooms within Moor Close, a beautiful Jacobean building located on campus. All living essentials (for example, bed sheets) for the duration of the tour is provided.
All meals are included in the price. Typically, we eat at the College cafeteria for breakfast and then have everyone pack their own lunch as most days we will be off campus during this time.
We usually have supper at the College cafeteria, but on the occasional trip day we aren’t back in time, we will hand out cash so you can purchase your own food, or we will provide an alternative. We understand that students might have different dietary requirements, so we are extremely flexible. We can also provide vegan, gluten-free or nut-free food as necessary.
There is plenty of opportunity to eat outside the campus as we are in close proximity to a shopping centre, restaurants and grocery shops. If you would like to buy your own food, outside of a pre-agreed arrangement, you can purchase this with your own money.
The closest airport to Newbold is London Heathrow (around a 30-minute drive away).
Before booking your flights, please contact us and we will assist you with airport shuttles and any transport related questions you may have.
Please note that should you arrive before, or depart after the recommended dates, you will need to arrange your own food and accommodation.
