Looking for a short food technology trip abroad filled with interesting and educational activities? Then choose Bruges and Boulogne!

We recommend that you start your food technology school trip to Bruges & Boulogne with a visit to the beautiful Belgian city. In Bruges you can visit a sweet factory for a demonstration on how sweets are made and learn about the history of chocolate at Choco-Story. You can also visit the Friet Museum – the first and only museum in the world dedicated to potato fries.

One of our most popular activities in Boulogne is a ‘hands-on’ pancake-making demonstration with the chance to sample what you’ve made. And on your way back to Calais, you can visit a traditional French boulangerie, where you’ll get to taste some freshly baked bread.

Giving students an opportunity to experience and learn from other cultures is something that I feel is invaluable in shaping their future. Barcelona is one of my favorite cities to visit as it has everything; culture, history, good food and the beach!– Paul Hudson Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Valencia is a fantastic destination for this age group of students. There is plenty to do and see. The language school was very good - their staff are helpful and welcoming and the standard of teaching is very high. Although you are aware of the presence of Valenciano around the city it did not cause any language barriers and in fact was a useful stimulus for cultural discussion on regional languages. it shouldn't put anyone off from travelling to Valencia. — Diss High School, February 2019
