Why are Equity great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
A History school trip to Edinburgh will give your emerging historians a new respect and understanding of the history of this capital city, as well as the way it has helped to shape the city and Scotland as a country. Although Edinburgh can trace its history to around 1000 B.C, the more interesting aspects come into play a little later down the line. Learn about medieval society and King David I, through to the relationship between Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth. Plus, give your students an understanding of Scotland’s role in the modern development of the UK.
What activities are available during group visits?
Founded as a monastery in 1128, the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh is The Queen's official residence in Scotland. Kings and queens have made the Palace of Holyroodhouse the premier royal residence in Scotland.
One of the most famous castles in the United Kingdom with a dramatic position that leads the skyline of Edinburgh, the Edinburgh Castle highlights Middle Age history and warfare.
