Overseas History school trips

History is one of those subjects that can really inspire some students but leave others feeling under whelmed. A great way to boost engagement in your chosen study topics is to take students on an overseas history trip. These types of trips allow students to see the places that they are reading and being taught about, making the subject more meaningful and allowing them to put historical events in context.

The tour companies that we work with all have tonnes of experience when it comes to organising school history trips. They know that every school will have its own unique objectives for the trip and that is why they will work with you to design the perfect history tour for your students. Whether you plan a teacher led history tour or wish to make use of guides with specialist subject knowledge to support your teaching, the trips below can meet your requirements.

Tailor make your trip!

Customise the perfect History trip for your school.

Popular school history tours

Although there are a thousand and one different location and historical subject combinations available, some school history tours are more popular than others. Here are a few of the common themes, though it your school requires a type of trip that we do not currently highlight on this page, please use the tailor made trip form and we will do our best to help find exactly what you are looking for.

Battlefield Tours - Poland, Germany

The two World Wars in the first half of the twentieth century will live on in memory for many generations to come. An important part of our nation’s social history, a school tour to the battlefields of France and Belgium, to the concentration camps of Poland or the divided streets of Berlin, will give students a better understanding of world events.

Classical History - Greece, Rome

The Classical period of history lasted roughly from the seventh century BC until the fifth century AD. Concentrated around the Mediterranean, there are still numerous sites in modern day Greece and Italy that will show students how people lived and give them a real feel for how life was during that period of history.

Art History - Paris

If this history of art is an important topic for your students, look no further than Paris. Quite apart from being an incredible city to visit in any context, Paris has more art galleries than you could wish for. Art history students cannot help but be inspired by the incredible works housed in the French capital.

Medieval History & Political History - Ireland

Ireland is so easy to get to, and has so much to offer groups of school children who are studying history. The two most requested topics we receive are Medieval and Political history. Learn about the Viking and Norman invasions of Ireland, or about the changing face of Northern Ireland between 1920 and the modern day.
