A school art trip to Glasgow is a great opportunity for your students to explore over 20 options of world-class museums and art galleries.

Glasgow is home to Europe’s largest civic arts collection with works by Van Gogh, Degas and Monet all waiting to be discovered by your students. If your students are studying for their art GCSE, they could use these visits to inspire work for their portfolio.

The city was named the UK’s top cultural and creative city by the European Commission in 2019, making this a great choice for a school art trip in the UK.

Laura Lucas — Tour Adviser

Don’t hesitate to contact me for any advice or further information on how your school trip can be tailored to your requirements.

Sachsenhausen is a must for a Berlin visit, as well as the traditional sites – TV Tower, Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Jewish Memorial, etc. For a leisurely afternoon the Berlin Zoo is also worth considering and we also tried out the lesser known Otto Weidz Museum which our students thoroughly enjoyed. Take full advantage of the U/S Bahn during the visit, particularly if travelling with KS4 students – we packed so much into the visit as a direct result. I’ll definitely be back for more as 4 days doesn’t even scratch the surface with so many fascinating sites easily accessible. — Horbury Academy, October 2018
