School Trips to London

School trips to London offer students an unforgettable discovery of the UK capital for your students!

This may be your students’ first school trip to London or it may be a city they know well. But the wonderful thing about London is that it offers so many exciting educational opportunities that you can visit over and over again without repeating yourselves.

London is proof that you don’t have to travel too far for an unforgettable school trip that will leave your students feeling inspired. And remember, all the school trip itineraries on our website are examples – we’ll tailor-make your school trip to meet your specific learning objectives and requirements.

Why visit London?

The UK’s cultural capital

London is the UK's cultural capital and so is a great destination for almost any subject. It's home to many museums, art galleries and other important cultural and historical institutions.

London is also the UK’s primary destination for theatre, making it the perfect choice for a performing arts school trip, or even an English literature school trip. Your students will love seeing famous plays and musicals at London’s world-famous West End and can even take part in professional workshops to develop their own skills.

And English students, in particular, will love a trip to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour where the world of Harry Potter is brought to life.

Discover fascinating history

London has been a major settlement for over 2,000 years, making it a historian’s paradise! History school trips to London can focus on medicine through time or the experience of those living in wartime Britain.

London boasts some of the best museums in the world, from the grand institutions on Exhibition Road, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum, to smaller, more niche museums such as the Old Operating Theatre. This means that whatever your subject focus, you can be sure there will be a museum in London that can help you bring it to life for your students.

Experience multiculturalism and diversity

One of the most exciting things about London is how diverse and multicultural the city is. This makes it a great choice for a religious studies school trip, as your students will be able to visit important places of worship and enjoy guided tours focused on faith in the city.

See the sights

And aside from the educational visits, your students will also want to squeeze in some sightseeing.

A school trip to London offers students the opportunity to see important historic buildings and monuments that they will be familiar with but will be hugely excited to see for themselves. You never forget the first time you see Buckingham Palace or Big Ben!
