Up the Mound with Madrid!

Sixth form class, Madrid were lucky enough to travel to the London and experience the capital’s latest sightseeing attraction, The Mound.

The Mound at Marble Arch takes inspiration from the history and diversity of the area, whilst offering a new perspective of the future, creating an experience of the ‘great outdoors’ right at the centre of the city.

Madrid class climbed the 140 step path that winds its way up to the summit. On the viewing deck students marvelled at the incredible views – never seen before by the wider public. They greatly enjoyed spotting different London Landmarks from a different perspective.

On their way down descending into the heart of the Mound, Madrid had the added bonus of experiencing ‘Lightfield’- a new light exhibition by W1Curates and British-American artist Anthony James.
