Cornwall & The West Country

Prices from: £145

The West Country counties of England offer an extraordinary learning environment for geography students, in addition to being a great cross-curriculum school trip destination.

It gives wealth of opportunity to cover topics including coastal and river processes and landforms, tourism, rural environments and sustainability. Start with a visit to Cheddar Gorge to discover the landforms and processes of this beautiful Karst landscape. Follow this with a walk along the Jurassic coast to discover how thousands of years of erosion has shaped the rocks, with examples of stacks, stumps, caves and arches.

The Eden project is also a must visit when in Cornwall giving students the chance to uncover the working of various ecosystems, viewing first hand plant species from tropical, Mediterranean and temperate biomes. 

With all this on offer and more just waiting to be discovered, why not arrange your next school trip to the West Country?
