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!
