Edinburgh is Scotland’s beautiful capital, and award winning cultural destination. It is a great place to visit at any time of the year thanks to the many different landscapes available to enjoy, from the stunning coastal beaches, to the encapsulating historic skylines. There is plenty to see and do in the city thanks to its rich combination of venues and activities which offer tradition and history as well as amenities which are contemporary and lively.
School trips to Edinburgh are particularly poignant for those studying art or history. It has two main districts, the Old Town which houses the breath-taking medieval fortress, and the neoclassical New Town, featuring post 18th century European urban architecture.
There are many potential school activities to enjoy. The National War Museum depicts over 400 years of Scottish military experience, and it is set in the wonderful setting of Edinburgh Castle. Alternatively the Edinburgh Dungeons will provide a unique and memorable experience.
If you’re lucky enough to have extended school trips to Edinburgh, there is plenty more to keep young minds stimulated: The Edinburgh Treasure Trail, Museum of Childhood, The Imagination Workshop and even Edinburgh Zoo.
Choosing school trips to Edinburgh really does offer inspiration, fun and of course education. Enabling school children of all ages to see, hear and experience some of the most important historic artifacts, will mean a brilliant excursion and the most memorable educational lesson.
