Why are Equity great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

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?
