Whether you are a school in Wales, or planning to lead a school trip to Wales, the school trip venues on this page cater for every curriculum subject at every Key Stage and year group.

Want an outdoor adventure for your school trip? Try one of the many great Welsh outdoor adventure or conservation centres - all of which you can find below, or on our dedicated Activity Centres in Wales page.

Want to study an aspect of Welsh history or culture? You'll find great, child-friendly museums, ancient castles and nationally important houses, all of whom have fantastic educational learning programmes specifically designed for school groups. The Welsh industrial landscape will also make for some interesting and educational visit opportunities, with places like the national mining museum in Cardiff and the slate museum in up in Llamberis.
