Newsweek Travel London Brexit

BRITAIN IN THE AGE OF BREXIT (LAND)

Tour Runs: April 4-9, 2018

Bewildered by Brexit? You’re not alone. Britain’s 2016 referendum on the European Union, in which the country voted to leave the EU after more than 40 years of membership, upended traditional alliances and divided the country. Anti-Brexit Prime Minister David Cameron promptly lost his position as head of the Conservative Party to Theresa May, who declared that “Brexit means Brexit!”  

But what is Brexit, really? How and why did it happen, and what will it mean for Britain and the wider world? Explore the significance of this historic vote—which historian Lord Peter Hennessy compared to the end of the British Empire—during a five-night stay in London. Tour Parliament and other iconic venues where Brexit-related events took place, and learn from panel discussions with British scholars, journalists, and politicians, who will place Brexit in its historical and global contexts. Special events at famed cultural venues offer opportunities for relaxation. This bespoke experience is designed for international travelers who are keenly interested in history, politics, and international relations. Our facilitator is Newsweek’s Josh Lowe, who reports from London on European politics. Starting at $6,999 per person.
