Brussels Citizenship

Prices from: £139 (3 Days, 2 Nights)

Brussels is a great city for Citizenship school trips. As home to the European Parliament and European Commission, Brussels allows pupils to explore the European community in relation to the UK and the wider world.

Belgium also has an intriguing history which has played a pivotal role in world politics from the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 to the WW1 Battlefields. Many Citizenship visits sit within reach of Brussels including the moving WW1 Battlefield sites, the illustrious diamonds of Antwerp and the renowned NATO. Add to this the International Court of Justice in nearby Luxemburg and Belgium offers a great, affordable base for your next Citizenship school trip.

Contact Adaptable Travel today to discuss your requirements so we can put together the perfect bespoke European Citizenship school trip for your group.

Bangor GB
Tour was excellent.

Evening meal in hotel was not enjoyed by students or staff - but otherwise the tour was fantastic.

Walking tour needed to spend more time on central sights and much less on the back streets / dodgy areas! Perhaps sut down to an hour of central sights only?
