Harlaxton leaves lasting memories

Harlaxton College was simply put, the best experience of my life and I couldn’t imagine what my life would be without it.

Snow at Harlaxton Manor

England looks even more beautiful when covered in snow. I have lived in Colorado almost my entire life, but nothing could prepare me for a snowy day at Harlaxton Manor. I could not even imagine a time when I smiled more or had such a magnificent day.

Living in a Castle

I am living in a castle. That is all that was running through my head as our coach pulled up to Harlaxton Manor where I will have the opportunity to be attending school for four months. The first few hours when we arrived were for us to freely explore the manor and take countless photos.
