School Science Trip to Brussels
Highlights of a science school trip to Belgium include a visit to the Euro Space Centre in Transinne, where students can experience life as an astronaut for the day and even explore a lifesize model of the space shuttle.
In Brussels, a visit to the Atomium is a must, and Technopolis in nearby Mechelen also comes highly recommended. You’ll be sure to find the right mix of visits to combine both education and fun to leave your science students feeling inspired! And you could also consider joining forces with the business studies, food technology or science department in your school to make this trip cross-curricular.

Bedford Girls’ School, April 2019I cannot think of any improvement to suggest. Would like to mention how brilliant your staff have been throughout all the planning period. They always listened and tried to find a solution to all our requests even though some of them were made at a very late stage and all communication was excellent. We are delighted and will definitely book out next trip with Halsbury.
