A performing arts school trip to London offers your students the opportunity to really experience the city’s famous West End!

If you’re looking to motivate and enthuse your performing arts students, then a tour of one of the world’s most famous theatres and seeing a West End show should do the trick!

With over 40 theatres and a variety of museum and tours available incorporating aspects of acting, lighting, sound, costume design, make up and front of house (to name but a few!), London really is an ideal destination for showing your students where performing arts can take them! And you could even team up with your school's English department, to make the trip cross-curricular.

I love inspiring curiosity in schools searching for the perfect trip to a destination I have first-hand experience in visiting. I love to learn what their travel plans are, the purpose for their trip and how this links back to the curriculum so that I can prepare an entirely tailored trip as if I were visiting myself. – Tom Moorhouse Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

The trip was an excellent experience for our students and they learnt a lot about how ice and volcanoes have shaped the country as well as the culture. — Academia Britanica Cuscatleca , February 2019
