Roman Tours UK School Trips

Home / All UK Regions / Cheshire

Roman Tours bring life to the story of the Roman invasion of Britain and the legacy of an Empire nearly 2000 years ago.

Dressed as a 1st Century Roman Soldier (other character roles available), we engage pupils through curriculum-relevant role play, character acting, questioning and activities, providing a unique and dynamic educational experience around the period of the Roman invasion and settlement of Britain. Our costumes and equipment, are exact copies of real artefacts and equipment found through archaeology investigation, to ensure our representation is as accurate as possible

★★★★★ , Leigh Central Primary School
"We had an excellent day in Year 4! Very interactive and engaging for the children. The soldier build an amazing rapport with the children and got them involved in acting and sharing of their ideas. A lot of relevant context about various parts of the Roman Empire/life.I wish our school day was longer so we could enjoy more time with the Roman soldier. I would 100% recommend this company and will be spreading the word to other teachers in local schools and in forums."
