Historic Buildings

We offer a wide variety of Historic Buildings for school trips, including English Heritage and National Trust buildings. An Historic building or site is a great way to engage your pupils and bring learning to life because they are official locations where pieces of political, military, cultural, or social history have been preserved due to their heritage value. Many have been recognized with the official national historic site status. Historic Building school trips and prehistoric sites we work with include forts, castles, abbeys, cathedrals, industrial sites, dockyards, stately homes, military buildings, roman villas, roman baths, manor houses, prisons and many more.
