New York English & Drama

A school trip to the amazing and inspiring city of New York is a once in a life time opportunity and a must for many students.  In addition, it is the perfect destination for English and Performing arts groups for so many reasons.  What student wouldn't be inspired by Broadway, Times Square and the Rockefeller?

New York is the home of theatre and has 40 venues located on and off Broadway. Watch, feel and live the performances of the world’s most famous Broadway shows such as; Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, The Lion King and many more.

Your students will be able to join in with the Broadway life as there are many workshops available in dancing, singing and acting! The City is also known for being a major filming location; your students will be able to visit the movie sets of their favourite shows and films, be given tours from local guides.  This is the number one experience which will stay with your students for a life time.

Add to this a performing arts workshop, some magical city sights from Central Park to the Statue of Liberty and this will be a school trip that will inspire students for years to come.

London GB
This is now the third time we have used Adaptable Travel for our annual exchange to New York and we continue to be highly impressed with their support, advice, knowledge and expertise. This year the uptake for the trip was low but the staff at Adaptable went out of their way to explore ways in which costs could be cut in order to make the visit viable. The fact that it happened is a tribute to their efforts. Everyone involved at Francis Holland Regent's Park was extremely appreciative and grateful for the personal touch provided and we look forward to working with them again next year. Thank you!

We loved the trip and had a great time in NYC. We did however find the hotel staff to be unhelpful when checking in we were waiting for 20/25 minutes for them to sort rooms out breakfast vouchers were not sorted for arrival so were posted under our doors. Breakfast was a let down for us the range was very small and not what we expected. For our next trip we would like to look at the breakfast range first and ensure we are happy with what is on offer so we don't end up eating breakfast out and we would like next years trip to be longer to fit everything in.

All in all it was a terrific trip and a great experience for the girls. Basically it is an exchange visit which Adaptable Travel organise for us and, going forward, we would like to have more time in the school in Manhattan but this is something for us to negotiate and not the tour company. Debbie at Adaptable Travel was brilliant: thorough, well-organised, quick to respond and very helpful indeed. Thank you. We will definitely book again!
