Vikings School Trips

Ufton Court

Home / London & South East / Berkshire

Ufton Court is a Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor House set within 16 acres of historical grounds and woodland. The rich environment combined with specialist teachers enable Ufton Court to offer a unique approach to education, teaching children in new and imaginative ways which enrich their learning and their lives. At Ufton Court the emphasis is on hands on, creative and interactive learning.

Our aim is to inspire your class to develop a passion for history and the outdoors. We understand that all schools are different and so our learning style is very flexible and our teachers work hard to provide schools with individual programmes that meet their needs.

Our schools get sole use of their residential sites at night, whether it is our beautiful Manor House or our cosy woodland cabins.

As with the Saxon residential, children can re enact a Viking raid or the battle of Reading.

All residential visits will have a Viking feast included, this will be in costume and will celebrate one of the many seasonal festivities including the Loaf Feast, Yule, Jolablot, The Charming of the Plow or Midsummer.
