A 40 strong group of primary school children enjoyed a bird's eye view of London during a visit to the capital.

The students at Gislingham Primary School had an excursion on the London Eye followed by a sightseeing tour on foot taking in sights such as Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade, Downing Street, Parliament Square and Buckingham Palace.

They then enjoyed a picnic lunch in the sunshine at St James' Park before experiencing a trip on the tube to the Natural History Museum.

Assistant head Julie Welham, who accompanied the children with other members of staff, said: 'Trips like this are important to give our children a broad education and to experience our capital city.

'The children enjoyed the day hugely and will remember it for a long time.'
