Edinburgh 2 Nights
Discover the history of Scotland’s capital city on your next school trip
The majestic city of Edinburgh is infused with history, culture, and vibrancy, a popular choice for pupils of all ages making this city a great destination for a cultural trip. With plenty of historic buildings, fun activities and museums to discover, one night is not normally enough, so we’ve created this two-night trip.
Engage Your Students with a Trip to the Medieval City of Edinburgh
Edinburgh has so much to offer school groups of all ages providing a beautiful contrast of two very different eras, the mystifying Old and New Towns.
Whether you visit Edinburgh Castle, one of the most popular royal residences throughout the medieval period or one of the more fun visits such as Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, there is something suitable for everyone.
A stroll down The Royal Mile offers your group a chance to see impressive, towering tenements, churches and cathedrals in the heart of Scotland’s historic capital. For those who want to discover the streets frozen in time since the 17th century then why not visit The Real Mary King’s Close, Edinburgh Dungeons or participate in your very own Ghost Walk?
“I would not hesitate to recommend The school Travel Company to any organisation.”
Full of history, culture and unforgettable memories.
