Your politics school trip to Belfast will help your students to deepen their understanding of the Troubles, the Good Friday Agreement and what devolved government means in Northern Ireland!

Start your politics school trip to Belfast with a guided walking tour of the city centre led by our specialist guides. The tour will bring the history of the Troubles to life and will help your students understand how the Troubles began, who was involved and the effects on the city and its people. You’ll also have time to talk about how far the city has come since the Good Friday Agreement.

You’ll also be able to visit Stormont, where your students will tour the parliament buildings and could even enjoy a Q & A session with an MLA.

Giving students an opportunity to experience and learn from other cultures is something that I feel is invaluable in shaping their future. Barcelona is one of my favorite cities to visit as it has everything; culture, history, good food and the beach! – Paul Hudson Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

The trip was magical in every sense. The children gained a lifetime experience, and all was made possible and easy with Halsbury. Nothing was too much trouble and Halsbury made a great trip a fantastic life experience. Thank you. — The Community College Whitstable , February 2019
