Lullingstone Roman Villa School Trips
Inspire your students and reinforce your teaching by standing at the place where history was made. There are two ways in which you can explore and learn from this remarkable Roman villa. Firstly we offer FREE self-led visits, so you and your pupils can enjoy your own visit in your own way. We also offer hands-on Discovery Visits. Led by experts, these sessions enable your students to discover what life was like for a Roman. Our ‘Hands-on Lullingstone Life’ session does just that – students can handle Roman artefacts and even experience the flavours and textures of Roman food in our food tasting session. ‘Magic and Medicine’ provides an insight into some of the ways in which people tried to keep themselves free from illness, and what a Roman doctor might diagnose – prepare for some surprises! At just £100 per session (approximately 30 pupils) these offer inspiring, out of the classroom experiences with quality learning. They have been specially developed to meet the needs of different groups across the key stages to really enhance your visit.
Once you have booked, you are entitled to a free planning visit, to familiarise yourself with the site and see all that it has to offer. We also offer free resources to support your visit and teaching in the classroom.
Why are English Heritage great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
