Subject Specific Excursions


Versailles Palace

Visit the opulent palace once resided in by Louis XIV and by Marie Antoinette. This was also famously the venue for the signing of the Peace Treaty in 1919. This palace is rich in history and in sumptuous style with incredible gardens to explore.


La Conciergerie

Marie Antoinette was detained here in this former prison during the French Revolution. A visit here is an absolute must for history students! Set alongside the River Seine this was originally built as the City's first palace, it only became a prison during the French Revolution.


Chateaux Vaux le Vicomte

Located 55km southeast of Paris, the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte was built in 1658 to 1661 for Nicolas Fouquet and inspired the Chateau de Versailles. The Chateau is set in an impressive estate and is packed with history.


Musee Grevin

The Musée Grévin is a waxwork museum in Paris – Named after caricaturist Alfred Grevin the Museum also houses the Hall of Mirrors built for the Exposition Universelle in 1900. Students can see some 450 characters arranged in scenes from the history of France and modern life including the French revolution.

Fragonard Perfume Museum

Nestled in the heart of Paris, close to the Opéra Garnier, this historic location is full of the spirit and character that Fragonard wanted to preserve. In years gone by it was a theatre and a velodrome for the elegant ladies of Paris in the mid-nineteenth century. The "Nouveau Musée du Parfum" reveals the secrets to the perfume trade, as well as a magnificent collection of precious objects tracing the history of perfume from antiquity to the present day. Immersed in the atmosphere of a late nineteenth century perfume factory, visitors will discover the world of fragrance through a set design that combines ancient artefacts, archives and videos of modern production. This is a unique olfactory journey in Paris! Tours can be in French or English.

Quick Tip: If you have an excursion in mind which you don't see listed, please get in touch so we can do our best to arrange it for you!

Dealing with Equity has been an absolute pleasure - the staff I have worked with have been knowledgable about the packages being offered and have responded quickly to any questions I have had, it has taken a lot of the pressure of organising an overseas trip away from me.
