School trips in the UK are proof that you really don’t have to go far to engage and inspire your pupils outside of the classroom. We offer a range of educational trips in the UK to support your curriculum, whether it's art, geography, science, performing arts, or something else.
We're an experienced school travel company, built and ran by former teachers. We're here to help you get your trip off the ground, with free teacher places, risk assessments, cancellation guarantees, and end-to-end planning and support from the moment you enquire.

Why should you consider the UK for your next school trip?
Unrivalled history and culture
The UK has such a fascinating history and rich culture – those of us who live here often forget how lucky we are in this regard!
Head on an educational school trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon to learn about the Tudors and Elizabethan England, or York to learn more about the history of crime and punishment. Or visit to one of the big cities, such as London, Liverpool and Manchester to find out what life was like on the home front during WW2.
Or, your group could head to Glasgow for some of the UK’s premier art museums. In Cornwall, you could experience artists’ studios and in Bristol enjoy a street art walking tour. And in Manchester, your pupils can find out how industrial cityscapes have influenced local artists.
Have you been asked to arrange a school trip that will offer your group opportunities to enjoy activities or experiences that wouldn’t be provided in a normal week?
We have residential trips that are perfect for both secondary and primary school groups.
You can choose from a great variety of destinations, including Yorkshire, the Peak District, Cornwall, the Lake District and the West Midlands. And you can choose from an incredible variety of activities and experiences, from snowsports, water sports and adventure sports to shelter building, visiting a theme park or exploring a medieval castle.
Here in the UK, we’re incredibly lucky to have some spectacular scenery right on our doorstep.
You could explore coastal landscapes and sustainability on a geography-focused visit to Cornwall. Or perhaps try the vast moorland and deep dales of the North York Moors. Or how about heading to the Yorkshire Dales to see the effects of hydrology on the landscape?
There are plenty of fantastic destinations that will benefit pupils by getting outside, having fun, and boosting learning all at the same time.
