Educational School Visits in Derbyshire
Derbyshire is a county in the East Midlands, sandwiched between the urban centres of Greater Manchester and Sheffield, making it a wonderful destination for school groups. Whether you are visiting Derbyshire from Derby or Chesterfield or further afield, there are plenty of learning opportunities.
Most of the county is rural, with almost half covered by the UK's first National Park: the Peak District. All this outdoor space makes Derbyshire a fantastic location for physical geography – upland river valleys, glacial processes. As long as your classroom topics are not coastal, Derbyshire is a gem of a destination.
The county's wide open spaces have also attracted some of England's best outdoor activity centres, all boasting superb facilities and a wealth of opportunities for outward bound team building adventures. We have an excellent selection of residential venues for your school.
School groups can peer into Derbyshire's rich historical past through a variety of exciting educational venues. Learn about life from the Middle Ages through to the 17th Century at Bolsover Castle, or visit Chatsworth House, one of the finest stately homes in the country, where you can learn about subjects like art, history, geography and field studies.
