What we offer on a school trip
Tudor World is an award winning museum situated right in the heart of the historic town of Stratford upon Avon, within a Grade 2* listed historic building.
Workshops cover the new curriculum for history which includes events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally; the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements (William Shakespeare) comparing aspects of life in different periods significant historical events, people and places in their own locality.
The day includes two guided workshops, a guided tour of the museum of around 30 minute's duration each and a tour of Stratford with William Shakespeare in person. Lesson plans are included.
The museum has a choice of three different ‘days’ to choose from: A Tudor Day (discover what it was like in the theatre, the army and at a trial), a Shakespeare Day (discover the language, insults and compliments of Shakespeare and theatre) and a Crime and Punishment Day (meet the gaoler and be involved in a trial).
Tudor World offers a fun-packed educational day that will leave the children buzzing with inspiration. Everything is taken care of: from the lesson plan and booking to the action-packed day, which is lead by qualified theatre and education staff.
The Tudor World is in the centre of Stratford upon Avon however coaches are usually able to stop and disembark and collect their passengers opposite the museum and then park at the Leisure Centre.
On warm days children can eat their park lunches in the park by the river at the bottom of the road.
The train station is a 15-minute walk away.
