What we offer on a school trip
We offer a range of services themed around our core learning offer, linked to the periods of British History when the Abbey became powerful. These can be adapted to different ages of students, different nationalities, and different ability levels.
Your group will also have the opportunity to enhance their learning by exploring the ruins and history of the site alongside one of our costumed guides.
This is a unique place. There has only ever been one Glastonbury Abbey and the stories associated with this place are inspirational and capture a child's imagination. If you wish to give your class a feel for what the country was like in medieval times you should bring them to the Abbey.
