Why are Equity great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

York is a fantastic destination for a school trip as it's a compact city that's filled with educational opportunities. From the towering York Minster to the underground Jorvik Centre, students will love the wide range of fun and exciting excursions.

Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?

trip icon

green tick Romans

A guided walk around the city will show students the history of the Romans in Britain and how they founded Eboracum, as York was known.

green tick Vikings

Jorvik, as the Vikings called it, was a thriving centre of commerce in Northern England and the Jorvik Centre is a fantastic experience for students to learn more about this period.

green tick Industrial

The National Railway Museum and the National Coal Mining Museum are perfect places to learn more about two of the biggest factors in England's Industrial Revolution.

green tick Victorian

At York Castle Museum and Prison students will learn about Victorians and their attitudes to crime and punishment. The National Railway Museum and the National Coal Mining Museum also give invaluable insights into this period of Britain's history.

What activities are available during group visits?

trip icon

Jorvik Viking Centre
Descend beneath the streets to ride through a bustling Viking marketplace. Hear the sounds, experience the smells and feel the atmosphere of life in York 1000 years ago. Use historical evidence to compare how Viking people lived with our modern way of life.

York Castle and Prison
William the Conqueror’s castle is long gone, but the elegant mansion housing the museum is ideal for developing chronological understanding of York’s past. Explore a 19th century street, handle artefacts in a Victorian classroom, and experience life in the Swinging Sixties!

National Railway Museum
Peek into Queen Victoria’s carriage; watch engineering in the workshops and climb aboard a futuristic Japanese bullet train. Get hands-on investigating how Newton’s Laws of Motion apply to trains, and watch a demonstration of the forces in action.

National Coal Mining Museum
Put on a miner's helmet, collect a battery lamp, then step into a cage and descend deep underground. An ex-miner will lead your tour recalling stories of the men, women and children who worked here. Get to grips with the science of mining back at the surface.

What size groups do you cater for?

trip icon

A minimum of 10 paying passengers but no upper limit, and we can split large groups across multiple coaches and hotels as required.
