Why visit Paris?

The cultural heart of France

As well as being the capital, Paris is also the cultural heart of France and the romance, beauty, food and buzz of the French capital will certainly make an impression on your students. Stroll along the magnificent boulevards, enjoy great works of art and savour the atmosphere.

Art and history groups are well catered for in Paris – some of the world’s most famous art galleries and museums are in the French capital, including the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay.

And, of course, a school trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without seeing its iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. All of this will help your students to understand French national identity and culture.

Get your students talking!

Teach French? Paris is the perfect setting for a French school trip designed to immerse your students in the French language and culture.

The opportunity to explore all that Paris has to offer through their linguistic skills will be an unforgettable experience for your linguists.

You can choose to spend your time sightseeing and taking part in French cultural activities that will allow your students to use their French in everyday, practical situations. We can also arrange French lessons at a specialist language school, which is a fantastic option for groups preparing for exams.

The incredible food

Of course, Paris is an incredible setting for a food technology school trip designed to introduce students to all the delights of French cuisine.

On your Paris school trip, you’ll be able to visit traditional bakers and patisseries to learn about some of the traditions that are integral parts of Parisian culture, such as the baguette and the magnificent pastries that glow in the windows of every patisserie in town.

Your students will leave Paris with a greater appreciation of the integral elements of French cuisine and the special place it holds in French culture.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is totally up to you. With Paris so close to the UK, the French capital can be reached in just a few hours by coach, train or plane. As such, we offer several day trip options if you're short on time. However, to see as much of Paris as possible and enjoy a variety of experiences around the city, we recommend a multi-day trip.

Yes, Paris is an excellent choice for a cross-curricular trip. We can plan a mixed itinerary that allows students to practise their language skills, learn about the French revolution, visit famed art and science museums, get a taste for Parisian food, or anything else you require.

Groups can visit Paris all year round. Summer is the main tourist season, so everything will be busier during this period. The crowds thin out during the shoulder seasons (April to May, September to October), but the weather is still pleasant.

Over the low season (November to February), there's still plenty to enjoy and costs will be lower. Plus, around Christmas time, the city lights up with beautiful festive decorations, market stalls, skate rinks, and more.
