Elizabethan England school trips to Kenilworth Castle and Stratford-Upon-Avon
One of the best places to learn about the Tudor period and Elizabethan England is Stratford-Upon-Avon. Thanks to being the hometown of world-famous Elizabethan playwright, William Shakespeare, there are some fantastic visits here offering your students the opportunity to experience life during the period.
You’ll also be able to visit Kenilworth Castle, with its spectacular Elizabethan Gardens and Kirby Hall, one of England’s most magnificent Tudor manor houses!
If your students are studying the Elizabethans, a school trip to one of England’s most magnificent castles, will provide them with an in-depth understanding of the historic environment.
To add more contextual understanding, why not give your students the chance to observe some of the finest examples of Tudor architecture on offer in England’s great manor houses and help them to learn more about the flowering of English culture during the Golden Age.
Depending on your programme of study, pick from a wide variety of activities to cover life in Tudor times and the world of Shakespeare. You can even learn more about the Stuarts, exploring the Personal Rule of Charles I and the Long Parliament.
Why arrange an Elizabethan England school trip?
Bring history to life
For 21st century teenagers, Elizabethan England can feel like ancient history. But it was an important period in the history of England and, with some carefully chosen visits, it’s possible to bring the history to life for your students.
They’ll love exploring the Tudor and Elizabethan buildings in Stratford-Upon-Avon, where they’ll discover more about England’s most famous playwright, William Shakespeare.
And they’ll be blown away by the spectacular Kenilworth Castle and Kirby Hall, where they’ll see how the aristocracy lived and why the period has a reputation for opulence and showiness.
Your Elizabethan England-themed history school trip is your opportunity to show your students just how exciting history can be.
By bringing this period to life, you’ll help your students to see that history happened to real people just like them, and that its effects are still felt today.
Your students will begin to realise just how useful the study of history can be for helping us to better understand the world around us. And this could lead to a real passion for history that could even see them taking their history studies further.
