School trips in Liverpool & Merseyside

If you are planning a school trip, Liverpool and Merseyside certainly have everything to offer. With its unique culture consisting of its first-class musical heritage, sporting achievements, great history and distinct charm, Liverpool is a place like no other.

Liverpool is a city with an abundance of history. Liverpool has the largest collection of galleries and museums outside London, which means that it is the perfect place to choose for an educational school trip. Its mercantile architecture situated on its striking waterfront is a concrete reminder of its past. The famous Albert Docks dating back to 1839 cannot be missed, as it is a significant landmark in British history as it reminds us that Liverpool was once an important global port. Consequently, it is a fantastic place for children to learn visually about British history as the children can see the largest group of Grade 1 listed buildings in the whole of the United Kingdom. You can clearly see why Liverpool achieved 3rd place in the Rough Guides' top worldwide cities to visit in 2014.

Liverpool is also an extremely easy destination to reach so therefore travelling there is not a problem. It is well-linked with the UK motorway network, from the M6 you merely need to follow the M62, M56 or M58.

History Trips

Our trips are memorable and hands on, never anything that you could do back in the classroom. We design our own in house resources - both IT based and more tangible resources, indoor and out. We lead sessions off site to allow pupils to immerse themselves in the topic where applicable - this is usually accompanied by a session here at the Eco Centre to broaden and deepen understanding.
