Anglo-Saxon School Trips provide students with a fascinating insight into an era of great historical interest. With very few written sources available, this is an area of history in which there is much to be explored and discovered. Studying the Anglo-Saxon period, which is otherwise known as the Dark Ages, provides educational groups with the opportunity to discover this era individually, allowing them to immerse themselves into a new historic learning environment.
If you’re looking for an Anglo-Saxon Workshop or interactive School Tour experience, UK School Trips has got you covered. Below, we have listed a variety of Anglo-Saxon attractions to help you find the perfect learning experience for you and your educational group. One of these venues is the Carymoor Environmental Education Centre in Somerset. Here, educational groups can take part in History Days, which involves students experiencing what life was like during the Anglo-Saxon period. From trying out ancient building techniques and grinding grain into flour, to making bread over a fire and playing fun games inspired by history, Carymoor’s History Days take an interactive learning approach to bring history to life. Kenilworth Castle also offers Anglo-Saxon School Trip experiences, providing educational groups with historically focussed tours, exhibitions, and interactive workshops.
