School Trip to York and Ripon - Crime and Punishment
Bring the history of crime and punishment to life with your history school trip to York and Ripon!
York is a fantastic destination for a crime and punishment-themed history school trip. You’ll be able to see for yourselves what prisons used to be like for inmates – and you’ll even explore some of their personal histories, to find out why they had found themselves in such horrific conditions.
Both York Castle Museum and Ripon Museums offer your students the opportunity to step back in time to learn more about the prison system through the ages. At Ripon Museums, you’ll also learn more about the justice system as a whole, from the establishment of the police force to the court system we still use today, by taking part in a ‘trial’. You’ll also visit a Victorian Workhouse, where you’ll learn why people were sent there and what life was like for them. And your students will be able to take on the role of Victorian detectives to investigate a murder that takes place there!
