Havering welcomed a group of well-travelled teenagers last month.
The 12 students had come from Uto High School, Japan, as part of the “Cultural Homestay in Europe” programme. After arriving in the borough on March 25, they spent a day in Hornchurch and visited more central tourist spots like the Tower of London, the British Museum and Westminster Abbey.
But a rather more modern London attraction is likely to stay in their memories.
“The group requested a visit which to the Harry Potter platform at King’s Cross Station,” said group co-ordinator Stephanie Nunn. “They all love Harry Potter.
“The other thing they all wanted to try was fish and chips – and it went down very well.”
