Our Range Of UK Trips Is Now Even Better!

UK school trips are a brilliant way to inspire your students outside of the classroom, with so many fantastic resources right on our doorstep. London boasts a number of world renowned museums, including the Imperial War Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Tate Modern. The capital’s rich history and culture is also showcased through their numerous other attractions, from Shakespeare’s Globe to HMS Belfast. But if you want to try somewhere different, think about Bristol, a real hub of information for History students, or why not consider Liverpool or Manchester for a new city experience. If you're looking for dramatic landscape or rolling coastlines the Cornwall or Northumberland could be right for you. The choices are endless!

From History to Art, Science to MFL and everything in between our experienced team will work with you to build a tour in the UK to match your learning objectives, whatever your subject.
