History school trips to Boston

History School Trips to Boston

Overview

With our History school trip to Boston, your students will discover a new found respect for this city and its unique history. The special historic relationship between England and Boston makes for a fantastic school trip destination. Encourage your students to familiarise themselves with the English heritage of the city, and the events that led to the notorious Boston Tea Party of 1773.

Allow them to digest information relating to the War of Independence and the subsequent flood of immigrants that swelled the city from 24,000 to 560,000 inhabitants. While in Boston, your students will also be able to pay their respects to the most famous of all Irish immigrants in Boston, John F. Kennedy, who, in 1961, was the first Catholic President of the United States of America. Bring the American Revolution and War of Independence to life for your students with a History school trip to Boston.
