For a cross-curricular and cultural enrichment tour that will inspire your students, you need look no further than the UK's own capital city, London!

Take your school group to visit the National History Museum or the Imperial War Museum, enjoy a ride on the London Eye and see all the iconic sights, including the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. This can all be followed by an evening at the Hard Rock Café or the theatre, before finishing at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. London works well for a whole variety of subjects, including history, performing arts, English literature and religious studies.

With carefully selected and audited hotel or hostel accommodation, a coach that stays with your group throughout the trip, and an experienced Itinerary Manager to pre-book your visits, a cross-curricular trip to London is a great choice for activities week or, indeed, at any time of year!

Granada is a perfect destination for a school party. The city is safe and easy to navigate for students which allows staff to offer a degree of autonomy to students for shopping and eating out. Our students loved the distinctive feel that the various neighbourhoods of the city offer, for example the small town feel of the Albaicín where the language school is situated. It is without doubt one of the most spectacular cities in Europe and it is an ideal base for exploring the nearby coast. Our students loved the trip to the caves in Nerja. — Nottingham Girls High School
