Famous Hollywood quotes

As Jonny Depp once said:
"It's good to experience Hollywood in short bursts, I guess. Little snippets. I don't think I can handle being here all the time, it's pretty nutty."

And what does Andy Warhol make of Hollywood?

"I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They're beautiful. Everybody's plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic."

Meals are not included in the price of the trip. The hotel is booked on a room-only basis as it is too expensive for us to take our meals there.

On previous trips the most popular breakfast venue has been Shelley's Cafe, across the road from the hotel, which you might recognise from the film Million Dollar Baby.

Lunch will normally be on the go, while we are out and about, and in the evening there are plenty of restaurants for the students to choose from in the vicinity of the hotel, including Mel's Diner, Jonny Rockets and many more.  

On our final night in LA, students are invited to a party
and awards ceremony organised by the staff, at Miceli's, a local Italian restaurant, the cost of which is included in the trip price. 


We will be staying at the four star Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, with 4 students to each room, on a room only basis. Click here to access the hotel's website:
