A school art trip to Bristol will allow your students to immerse themselves in a thriving contemporary art scene in one of the UK’s most exciting cities!

Almost wherever you turn in Bristol you’ll stumble across another gallery, exhibition space or piece of street art. Your students will be able to see both older and more modern works of art, by British and international artists.

UNESCO designated Bristol a City of Film in 2017 and is a member of the Creative Cities Network, so it’s a great choice for groups interested in digital culture and creative industries. If you’re looking for a school art trip within the UK that will leave your students feeling inspired, Bristol could be the perfect option for you. And our school travel specialists will work closely with you to ensure that your trip is tailored to meet your curriculum.

The trip was a success. Thanks to all those who helped it to be so. The modern hotel in particular worked well for us and the staff were exceptionally helpful; all bookings for visits etc. proceeded very smoothly, as did the transfers. — Northampton High School, February 2019
