School trips and educational visits in Sussex

School trips form an important part of the educational programme offered by any school. Whichever curriculum topic you are studying, we can help you find the perfect educational visit in Sussex.

The historic county of Sussex, land of the South Saxons, is divided into the modern day counties of East and West Sussex. Dominated by the chalk hills of the South Downs National Park, Sussex has a lot to offer school groups. If you are a local school studying history, you will be the envy of schools throughout the UK. From the prehistoric remains of Boxgrove Man, through the Roman invasion in A.D. 43 that established places like Chichester and nearby Fishbourne palace, to the Battle of Hastings and the subsequent Norman Conquest that changed the medieval face of our country.

Museums, castles, sea life centres, or places to spend an outward bound week - get ideas for the best places to visit, with videos, photographs and information about inspection visits and risk assessments. We feature a range of specialist venues who run programmes of activities for school groups, colleges and youth groups including out of the classroom visits, educational workshops and residential stays. To give your class a wonderful learning experience in Sussex, please make use of our short enquiry form, or take a look through a selection of our best venues in the county or the wider south east region, or further afield, using the menu above.
