Cadets saw three plays, Stones in His Pockets, This Is Our Youth, with Chris Klein and Freddie Prinz, Jr., and Love's Labour's Lost, with Joseph Fiennes, at the National Theatre. In London, the entire group spent the first day on a scavenger hunt for the places they would be touring later in the trip and for various, typical London sights (including a London loo). During the remainder of the week, they toured the Globe Theatre, the British Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Imperial War Museum, Westminster Abbey, and the Tower of London and saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Individuals and smaller groups also toured St. Paul's Cathedral, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tower Bridge and various other museums and landmarks.

As in the previous year, the group also took a day-trip to Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle.
