Places to visit for school groups

With over a thousand kilometers of coastline, and some spectacular mountain ranges, it is hardly surprising the Welsh tourist board play up the invigorating great outdoor when marketing the country.

If you are looking for outdoor locations for your school trip, you could try one of the great outdoor adventure or conservation centres listed below, or on our dedicated Activity Centres in Wales page. Or how about taking in some Welsh history and culture in the National Museum. The Welsh industrial landscape will also make for some interesting and educational visit opportunities for your school group.

Let us find the perfect place in Wales for your school trip.
