School Trips and Educational Tours to London

With the London 2012 Olympics just recently passing, there has never been a better time to take a school trip to London. Boasting stunning architecture, historical landmarks and world class museums, London is a vibrant multi-cultural city steeped in tradition and Royal heritage that is perfect for school trips of any subject.

Home to the Royal Family and the capital city of England, London school trips offer the tourist buzz of Leicester square, the dramas of the West-End, the politics of Westminster, the shopping heaven of Oxford Street and the timeless grace of Greenwich.

Packed full of enthralling attractions, a school trip to London will excite, inform and educate your students. It is a great way to learn about the remarkable history of the country's royal lineage, explore the wonders of the capital and unwind from all the schoolwork.

Newton Abbot GB
Accomodation and food fantastic, staff really welcoming and helpful. Tours excellent. The Lion King Workshop was disappointing - 2 out of 3 of the workshop leaders were not prepared and it was not what we had asked for.

Holmes Chapel GB
Firstly the trip was fantastic! A couple of things worth mentioning though. The workshop based on The Play That Goes Wrong being in two separate venues was a slight faff and caused us to be even later than we should have been for the session. Also some of time timings had not taken into account events in London and so we were stuck in traffic more than usual which meant we were late for some of the activities or had to rearrange the schedule. It would be worth bearing in mind events which may have an impact on the trips. On the other hand some of the timings were too generous and so we had to find activities to fill the time on the spot. Luckily we could do but the activities did not feature in our risk assessment and so we were taking a risk by doing these. Overall though we had a wonderful trip and the experiences the students undertook were truly unforgettable! The Globe tour whereby we witnessed a live rehearsal was incredible also the workshop session post this was really engaging. The students and staff really loved the experience and we are hoping to book again it bext Year! Thanks for all of your help. It was most appreciated.
