Each year the Department organises a weekend trip to Cumberland Lodge in Great Windsor Park. The trip brings together staff, guest speakers and students for a weekend of socialising, relaxation and intellectual stimulation.

The Venue

Cumberland Lodge is a former Royal hunting lodge in Windsor Great Park. It was built in the 17th century and played host to royalty and aristocracy until the mid 20th century, when its use was granted to an educational charity. Today the lodge is used for academic workshops and short residential courses for groups of students from schools and universities right across the country.


Although the aims of the trip are primarily intellectual, we do try to make time for less mentally taxing activities as well including walks through the park, karaoke nights and much more.

Further Information

The trip is scheduled to take place each year during Autumn Term, usually in November. We will announce all details via email.
