UK Subject
Based Tours

School and college tours can provide students with experiences to enhance the knowledge they gain in the classroom

UK Subject Based Tours

We have designed a range of enriching educational tours based on specific areas of the curriculum, such as History, Science and Film & Media, which will provide students with a learning experience beyond the classroom, stimulate students' imaginations and help them relate their knowledge to the real world. Your students could enjoy learning about science first-hand through interactive exhibits at the Science Museum for example, or have a go at presenting the news at London’s BBC Studios on a Film & Media trip.  But remember, you can take students on an inspirational trip based on other  subjects, too – we specialise in tailor-made travel experiences and can organise a tour around any subject of your choice. 

Although the tours outlined below are the only pre-determined trips that are subject-specific, all are designed to provide both an educational and enjoyable experience for students. Our range of themed trips offers excursions to fun and exciting attractions, which can also teach your students about history, English or fashion.

Of course, our Teacher Promise guarantees the highest safety and quality standards apply on all our trips.
