Stratford upon Avon 1 Night
Of course, there’s more to Stratford than Shakespeare…
From rainforest environments at the Butterfly Farm to the jaw-dropping history at Warwick Castle, you’ll find plenty for your group to do.
Schools will get to experience what life was like in Tudor times, a world that shaped Shakespeare’s life and works, on this overnight residential. Stratford is an inspiring destination for a school trip and budding historians.
This Quintessentially English Town is Guaranteed to Inspire Your Pupils
This overnight residential is a perfect amount of time to improve pupils’ engagement with learning as well as greater cohesion. They can explore the quaint medieval town with its thatched houses, complete with the birthplace of the world-famous playwright, William Shakespeare.
Pupils can find out where the Bard and his family lived, the places he visited, and gain a new perspective on life in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. You’ll be amazed just how much of Shakespeare’s world remains.
Immerse yourself in sixteenth century Stratford-upon-Avon at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall. Explore the very room where William Shakespeare sat in the 1570s and where he wrote his first works and experience Tudor school life with William Shakespeare’s teacher, Master Thomas Jenkins.
A cruise on the River Avon is an ideal way to see this culturally rich town from another perspective and the Tudor World Ghost Tour by lantern light offers a spooky historical experience, not to be forgotten!
“The School travel company are very organised, very effective and make the trip planning process run very smoothly. Their prices are better than other companies too.”
