Some school trip venues are clearly targeted at, and suitable for, a specific subject within the National Curriculum. Other venues may cover a range of subjects and can tailor the educational experience to fit your current topic. The venues listed under the subject headings below are perfect for primary schools and secondary schools alike, and each individual venue we list details for will give an indication of the suitable Key Stages.
The UK day trips you will find below are well suited for primary school children or Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, as well as secondary school students. We feature venues that can bring the Victorian age to life through participation and role play, art galleries offering learning resources far beyond the budgets of most schools, and science centres who offer hands on experiments and engaging topic workshops. If budgets are tight, take a look at our workshops section, and bring experts into your school.
If you require any help or advice while organising your primary school trip, please get in contact and we will be glad to assist you.

If you do not have the time or resources to take your children out of the classroom for an off site visit, please take a look at the wide range of curriculum linked workshops that can visit your school. Covering lesson topics such as history, science, maths, drama and music, and citizenship, we can help you arrange an expert to visit and present an inspirational workshop tailored to your classwork.
Activity Day trips are a popular form of reward trip, especially following SATS week for primary and juniors, or to keep younger secondary school students out of the way during GCSE season. Week long residential activity trips are taken most months of the year, with the end of primary or the start of year 6 being particularly popular.
Whenever you are planning your activity trip, and whatever experiences you would like to cram in for your group, with the best choice of venues in the UK, we can help find the perfect residential.
If you are planning to stay at a school trip venue for multiple nights then the distance you travel may not be too much of an issue, but for day trips, places within easy reach of your school make far more sense. Unless you are planning to visit a venue of national importance, you should be able to find a suitable trip within your region.
With so many fantastic educational trips to choose from, we have tried to make it easier for you to find inspiration by separating the venues into broad regional UK categories. Browse a wide range of educational visit opportunities for your school group in London & the South East, East Anglia, the South West, the Midlands, the North of England, Wales and of course Scotland.
