City Tours for School Groups

Educational city breaks

Working with schools the length and breadth of the British Isles, we see all types of trips. Often, teachers at inner city schools enquire about rural locations for their residential trips, and in a similar way, plenty of rural and smaller town schools like to take their children to experience the sights and sounds of big cities like London, Birmingham or Manchester. You may be planning a fun reward trip to take in some famous sights and attractions, or an educational guided walking or sight-seeing bus tour to soak up the local heritage. Taking children out of their familiar environment is a great way to learn.

If you are looking for a city tour for your school group, we can help! We can assist you with day trips or longer stays. With itineraries suitable for primary group classes, secondary schools, or higher education establishments, the city tours we feature will give your students a memorable learning experience.

In terms of the curriculum, a UK city tour can cover everything you can think of. History students can delight in Roman Bath, Viking York, Medieval Oxford, or Victorian Leeds, places steeped in history. Lovers of science can take a trip to the space centre in Leicester, study Brunel in Bristol, or learn about science and industry in Manchester. Itineraries can be tailor-made to fit with what you are aiming to achieve.
