At the Tourist Office

The EDIA bunch at EOI Luarca are still travelling around London and on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 December 2018, they stopped by Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.



While there, they investigated about the History of both landmarks and learned more on when to visit, what to do inside as well as some interesting facts such as measures, nicknames or British traditions like the afternoon tea.


Besides, they started a temporary job, at the London Tourist Office, where in teams, they designed a couple of leaflets in order to renew the Tourist Office window and advertise Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to tourists.




They had to search for sample leaflets, find basic information regarding opening times, prices, facilities and guided tours, so as to be able to create attractive but authentic outcomes too.



Finally, as tourist officers, they had to explain to a special tourist (the teacher), why Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament were those spots one cannnot miss when in London.

How do we do a succesful trip with teenagers?

To travel with teenagers is not always easy, but we can try to mix the cultural visits, for their blossom, with other a little more exciting experiences to them.
A journey to London can  start early in the morning, in a meeting with a "Daybreakers" in order to relieve their energy with a session of dance, yoga, fitness, skate and breakfast, etc before the day begins. Then, the activities can be mixed between the iconic visits, like the Big Ben , Westminster Abbey, all the Museums, with other activities a bit different for them , for example it's always nice to do a cruiser on the Tames, but we can travel in a fast boat. Great for the "Thrill Seekers".
Shoping, cycling, underage parties, getting images of street art, could be interesting activities for them. It could also be nice to combine that with a quiet pic-nic at one of the magnificent Royal Parks in London, just to rest.
London is a big city full of experiences to live as a tourist. With teenagers the trip w…
