What we offer on a school trip
Using costume character guides and a variety of sights, sounds and smells, we recreate London during the 16th and 17th centuries. Using different stimuli, children learn what people ate, drank and wore during the times as well as learning about historical events including the Black Death and the Gunpowder Plot.
The experience is linked directly to the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 and 3 and passes some of London's most iconic landmarks including Shakespeare's Globe, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral. A tour of the Globe Theatre can be added as an extra.
The programme was designed in partnership with Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and educational professionals and the attraction style experience has been recognized by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom.
