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.
