Amaze your students with exotic greenery at the world-famous Eden Project, home to thousands of exotic plants and flowers and fantastic research programmes. Discover all the uniqueness of Cornwall with other fascinating and awe-inspiring spots such as Minack Theatre, St Michaels Mount and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Teach your students an understanding of the beautiful coastal landscapes of Great Britain and the fascinating wildlife and habitats to be explored. Cornwall offers fantastic visits where students can appreciate the delicate eco-systems of local coastal towns and develop their understanding of oceans and local marine life at visits like The National Maritime Museum and Padstow village National Lobster Hatchery.
If you wish to extend the adventure or simply venture a little further afield than Cornwall, the West Country provides further opportunities to explore geography and science at Cheddar Gorge and the Jurassic Coast.  Just a stone’s throw away these fascinating visits will engage and inspire students of all ages.
