School Crime & Punishment trips

Learn about the development of the court and prison system with a school trip that will allow your students to appreciate how the concept of justice has evolved over the centuries in Britain on one of our crime and punishment-themed history school trips.

From the Anglo-Saxons through to the Viking and Norman conquests, and right through to the modern day, your students will explore how crime was punished throughout the ages. They’ll learn about what life was really like for inmates in prisons, where conditions could be pretty brutal.

And you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the formation of professional policing and how the court system works. All our crime and punishment-themed history school trips can be completely tailor made to meet your specific learning objectives.

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!
