London for Schools and Students
Ideal for school trips, group getaways, social groups and educational residentials, whether you’re staying for a night, a week or longer, there’s plenty to get excited about when you’re planning a visit to the capital. You could take in the sights of Westminster, Downing Street, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace in just one morning. An afternoon could be spent at the London Transport Museum, before watching the street performers in Covent Garden and Leicester Square. And that’s just in one tiny part of the city!
Perhaps tomorrow you’ll acquaint yourself with the Tudors at Hampton Court Palace, take a gentle stroll through the oldest parts of the city before enjoying a picnic in the park, then take a Yeoman tour of the Tower of London? Schools can also visit the Parliamentary Education Centre to learn more about how the government works. Complete with parliament-themed learning rooms, augmented reality experiences, 360 degree projections and sound technology, it’s a great interactive experience.
Greatdays will be pleased to assist with all your arrangements to ensure that you get the most from your visit, which can include your travel arrangements, accommodation, meals and full programme of educational and fun learning.
We are also pleased to offer 1 free place for every 15 paying students – please contact us for more details.
