It Happens (or Happened) at Harlaxton!
From Isaac Newton's birthplace to Harlaxton Manor itself, the area around Harlaxton is full of British history - another element we incorporate into every student's experience.
Because so much of British history has happened at or near Harlaxton, we do local trips—field trips from classes, coach trips form the College to area places of interest, all at very modest cost (like £5) over your normal tuition and fees—so you can get the flavor of real life in Britain, past and present.
These trips are often, but not always, connected to your classroom studies.
