Why book Equity for Residential 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.
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
Edinburgh is a fantastic destination to learn about Medieval Scottish history, as both Macbeth and Robert the Bruce were crowned here. Visit Scone Palace, the Royal Mile and the city's Old Town to uncover more about Medieval Scotland.
Edinburgh is steeped in history to do with the Tudors and Stuarts. Take a trip to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, which has been the residence of royalty in Scotland for centuries, and is a great place to learn more about the Tudors and Stuarts.

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.
