School Trips - Equity First World War Battlefields Tour
Our goal is to empower students to develop an active interest in their school subjects. Examining artillery at the museums, walking through the trenches and reflecting on the lives lost at the war memorials is an experience students will never forget, and cannot be felt when learning about this subject matter in the classroom.
Why should you consider Equity for School Trips and Educational Visits?
We can tailor make a tour specific to the learning needs of your group, or students can follow a sample itinerary. This tour includes historical sites such as Thiepval Memorial, In Flanders Fields Museum, Memorial Museum Passchendaele as well as Menin Gate where the Last Post commemorates those who fell in the war every evening.
This moving war memorial commemorates missing British and South African men who died in the Battles of the Somme between 1915 and 1918.
Menin Gate & the Last Post
Groups can see the moving ceremony of the Last Post at the Menin Gate. The traditional final salute to the fallen is played in honour of the fallen soldiers, whose names are inscribed on the famous memorial.
In Flanders Fields Museum
Explore the devastating events that occurred in the Flanders region during the Great War. From the invasion of Belgium, to the trenches and the aftermath of the war, students can learn about the human experiences involved.
An important aspect for students to discover is the other side of the conflict - the German soldeir's experiences. This cemetery holds the remains of over 40,000 German soldiers who dies in October 1914.
Memorial Museum Passchendaele
Delve into trench warfare with this realistic exhibition of a British underground bunker system. Explore the communication and dressing post, as well as headquarters and dorms to gain a greater understanding of life in the trenches.
What size groups do you cater for?
We have a minimum number of 10 paying passengers but no upper limit. We can split large groups across multiple coaches and hotels as required.
Is there first aid on site?
We believe the travel insurance policy we offer is one of the best available.
Do you offer access for visitors with disabilities?
With prior knowledge to booking we can arrange a tour that takes into consideration any students with disabilities.
