School Visits Cornwall
With its picturesque beaches and cliff tops, distinctive history, and first-class attractions, Cornwall is a wonderful destination for school groups planning their annual school trip.
Cornwall has its own distinct history and identity and therefore an excellent informative place to take the children. Cornwall remained a separate country for centuries with its own dialect until the 1700s. The Cornish saw themselves and were perceived as a separate ethnic group during the Tudor period, which is highlighted during the reign of Henry VII in The Cornish Rebellion of 1497. Cornwall's history and separate identity is also important and relevant today, as the Cornish people will obtain the same minority status as the Welsh, Irish and the Scots.
Furthermore, the spectacular landscapes of the Cornwall coast are ideal for feeding the imagination and creativity of the students. The breathtaking sceneries can inspire the students artistically through poetry or art, like they have done for many artists before. Since the early nineteenth century Cornwall has been a dominant destination for people in pursuant of the arts and culture. Currently, Cornwall is the second most popular place outside London for working artists to locate.
