Our school multisport tour around the UK will give your students the opportunity to test their skills against friendly local opposition and explore some of the UK’s most historic cities – London, Cardiff, York and Edinburgh!

We can arrange friendly fixtures for a variety of sports, including rugby, cricket, hockey, football and netball, so you can offer as many students as possible the opportunity to enjoy this tour exploring all that the UK has to offer! And you can even upgrade your tour to include professional coaching if you want your students to focus on their technical skills on this tour.

You’ll also have plenty of time to visit a number of historic sites around the UK while on your school multisport tour to London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and York. Enjoy a spooky walking tour of York, visit the medieval castle that sits proudly in Cardiff city centre and hang out with the rich and famous at Madame Tussauds!

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

We chose Halsbury because everything has been excellent for us for the past 15 years and we especially love the personal touch. The answer is always 'yes, we can do that for you'! As always, the experience of working with Halsbury on this tour was very good - everyone was very pleasant to talk to and helpful. They were always able to solve problems for us both in the build-up and during the tour. We consistently recommend Halsbury to other tour organisers, as they care about the tours they prepare and make sure they are tailored to our needs. — Brighton College , August 2023
