This tour is an excellent opportunity to investigate the mathematics that makes London work!
From the Wembley Stadium arch, to the Bank of England, your students will be surrounded by maths during a visit to the city. Have fun calculating the height of key landmarks, such as Nelson’s Column, or take the opportunity to consider the mathematical challenges engineers faced whilst building the iconic London Eye.
Visits to the Science Museum’s Mathematics and Computing exhibitions are a must, as is the British Museum’s Maths Challenge.
