Educational School Trips in Lancashire

Lancashire, or Lancs as it is often referred to, is a large county in North West England that includes towns such as Preston, Bolton and Wigan. Lancashire County Council is responsible for more than six hundred schools, including more than four hundred primary schools. If you also include Manchester, which was historically the central hub of the county, the area has the second largest concentration of people, behind London and the demand for school trips is huge.

School Trips and Lancashire's Industrial Heritage

In a historical context, every school child knows that the county of Lancashire was famous during the industrial revolution, with a skilled work force inherited from the local woollen industry, it was no surprise that the cotton mills located in the north west to take advantage of the skills, the rivers flowing down from the Pennines, and the abundance of rich coal seams at the heart of many Lancashire boom towns. This rich industrial legacy makes Lancashire a superb place to study the development of industry and its influence on British history. There are a great many textile museums, museums dedicated to steam, and of course the famous Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.

Lancashire council itself helps maintain a number of museums that cover subject areas ranging from maritime history to stately homes. Their ethos is to provide your pupils with opportunities to explore and be expired by Lancashire’s rich heritage, through interactive displays and special events throughout the school year.
