Economics and Politics Trip to London
- Published: Tuesday, 30 June 2015 08:40
The departments of Politics and Economics took 45 students to London on a typically sunny Monday 29th June.
The group began with a tour of both Houses of Parliament and then had an informative Q & A session with MP for Sheffield Central, Paul Blomfield.
After a short walk along Whitehall, we were then fortunate enough to be able to access Downing Street for photo opportunities. Indeed, half of the group managed to appear on a live Sky News broadcast!
At the Bank of England, Birkdale students had the on-site cinema to themselves as they found out more about the role of the Bank in UK monetary policy and regulation.
After exploring the culinary delights of the City, the group travelled back to Sheffield, having enjoyed a packed and memorable day.
