The mountainous country of Wales provides the perfect backdrop for numerous School Trip Ideas and experiences. Whether you want your class to explore the breathtaking Mount Snowdon or would prefer to discover one of the numerous historic castles that Wales has to offer, there is something here for classes of all ages and abilities.

One of Wales’ greatest selling points is its fantastic geography. Geographically, there really is everything that you could wish for. For classes looking to delve underground, the Slate Caverns provide deep mine tours where students can discover life and the environment beneath the surface. At the other end of the spectrum, students can take to the tree tops and explore nature from above on the Go Ape high ropes course. Not only are these School Trips geographically educational, they also provide students with a one-of-a-kind experience that they will never forget.

Wales is also known for its traditional Celtic language and national history. If you want your class to study the culture of Wales, then UK School Trips is the place for you. We provide a wide variety of extraordinary School Trips, all of which highlight the history of Wales as a nation. The numerous castles and spectacular manor houses offer intriguing experiences, where your students will unearth knowledge on Wales that they may have never come across before.
