The United Kingdom is rife with history, from the era of the early Anglo-Saxons, through the Battle of Hastings, beyond the medieval era of castles and feudalism, to the horrors and victories of both World Wars, and so much more. Bring this history to life for modern students with educational tours of this majestic nation, where royalty still captures the attention of the world and mystery still hovers around famous sites.
On an educational trip in London, students can explore the vast history of human culture from all over the world in the British Museum, documents of great significance in the British Library, and British history in the Museum of London. Here, students can visit the many memorials and museums from the World War I and II eras, including the Churchill War Rooms, from which Winston Churchill would “direct the war.” Key locales for the British government can also be seen here, such as the Houses of Parliament, and of British royal history, such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and others.
All around the country, students can explore castles, visit museums, and learn about the United Kingdom’s rich history. The National Museum of Scotland, various museums in each of the unique cities around the country, and more provide windows into the past for your students. Students can even see interesting pieces of cultural history such as the historical homes of the Beatles, or they can speculate on the mystery of Stonehenge.
In the City of Bath, students on English history tours can see multiple eras and civilizations. Bath was founded by the Romans as a spa city, yet it acted as a center for the wool industry during the medieval era. Remnants of Roman, Palladian, and medieval architecture remain, allowing students to learn about the spread of Roman influence and the austerity of the medieval times.
In Wales, students can see into the Industrial era of the United Kingdom, specifically in the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape in Torfaen. With quarries, public buildings, workers’ housing, railways, and more, this city is the Industrial Era preserved, giving your students a look at this momentous time in history from a perspective outside of the United States.
