The houses of York and Lancaster

Tudor School Trips cater for a popular part of the history curriculum. The Tudor period began in 1485, following the final battle of the Wars of the Roses, which had been fought during the Plantagenet period between the house of York and the Lancastrians. Henry Tudor's victory over King William III led to a period of relative stability, where three Kings and two Queens reigned until 1603. At this point, Elizabeth I, and the Tudor period was succeeded by the house of Stuart where an act of union created the Kingdom of Great Britain.

The Stuarts had ruled Scotland since 1371, and continued to rule the new Kingdom until 1714. During this period, Europe was experiencing a transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. In our new Kingdom, the Stuarts were keen to develop the arts and the sciences, so it is perhaps unsurprising that the period nurtured the likes of Shakespeare, Robert Hooke and Sir Isaac Newton. In all, four Kings and two Queens from the house of Stuart ruled Great Britain.

Edinburgh City Tour



Edinburgh is a city of beautiful contrasts. The ancient castle perched atop its volcanic crag, the mishmash of medieval tenements towering over the Royal Mile, and the New Town's neoclassical grandeur are all out to impress and charm.

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 , 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....
