School Trips To The United Kingdom

There's no place like home!

Many of our school trips to the UK cover all aspects of the national curriculum from Key Stage 1, all the way through to University level, including topics from examination boards such as AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL. Students can use our educational trips as case study opportunities in their exams and coursework, learning about The Tudor Dynasty, Medieval Times, Britain during WW1 and WW2, as well as Crime and Punishment.

London is often the first choice for many schools when choosing an educational trip within the UK. The capital is great for a wide variety of subjects including History, English Literature, Business Studies, Science, Art & Design and much more.

London boasts an endless selection of attractions to choose from, including iconic points of interest such as the Tower of London, Canary Wharf and the London Eye, as well as thought-provoking museums such as the Imperial War Museum and Tate Modern.

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of London, why not take your students to the breath-taking sandy beaches of Cornwall. Visit the quaint fishing town of Padstow and discover first-hand the wonders of marine biology at the National Lobster Hatching Centre or take your students to Cornwall’s most popular tourist attraction - The Eden Project, often referred to as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’.

The medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon is a favourite for English Language and Literature students. Pupils can visit the birthplace of William Shakespeare, explore how Shakespeare’s pioneering work relates to his life when visiting his wife: Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, or watch a production at the renowned Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Take your students to Edinburgh – where past and present collide! This vibrant city offers bags of culture and even features a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Scotland’s capital offers a wealth of historical landmarks – from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace, making it ideal for a compelling history school trip.

We offer a variety of residential trips for primary school pupils – from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2, covering the UK’s stunning coastline and historical cities such as London and York. Students can celebrate World Book Day on one of our tailormade World Book Day excursions, where they can experience a thrilling West End Show or have a behind-the-scenes tour of the magical world of Harry Potter at Warner Bros. Studios.
