Why visit Cornwall?

Spectacular landscapes

The 422 miles of coastline make Cornwall an ideal location for a geography field trip in the UK. School groups will be able to explore the sandy beaches, cliff-top walks and iconic attractions such as Lizard Point, St. Michael’s Mount and the Eden Project.

If you visit Cornwall and the West Country, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to curriculum content.

The coastline will help bring your geography lessons to life, while the Eden Project has a huge range of educational workshops available to suit your requirements.

We can also tailor your Cornwall tour with a stop in Devon or Somerset - Wookey Hole Caves would make a great visit to begin or end your trip!

Incredible art

Most art school groups choose to base themselves around St. Ives, which has attracted artists for decades. Here you can visit the Tate St. Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum, as well as the many artists’ studios and galleries around the town.

Your young artists will love the opportunity to learn more about artists who have lived in the area over the years. And they’ll be inspired by the opportunity to interact with local artists who are currently living and working in St. Ives.

Improve students’ wellbeing

The health benefits of being by the water are well known and where better for a seaside trip than the spectacular Cornish coast?

Residential school trips to Cornwall have become more and more popular, as schools recognise the benefits of providing students with the opportunity to spend some time near the sea. And with Cornwall’s sub-tropical climate, a school residential in Cornwall is possible at any time of year.

But don’t worry, your residential trip won’t just consist of hanging around on a beach, there are some excellent education opportunities here. You could include visits to art galleries, or a visit to the Eden Project, where students can learn about biodiversity and sustainability.

And why not push your students out of their comfort zone and include a surf lesson? After all, this is the surfing capital of the UK!
