  • Overview

    What better way to educate and inspire students than taking them on a trip to visit 'The Big Apple'. The city has so many events, experiences and landmarks to offer, making school trips to New York hugely popular.

    The city of New York is as famous for its unique and identifiable skyline as it is for its infamous landmarks, with only Hong Kong having more completed skyscrapers than New York. Its five boroughs are home to some of the world’s most famous and recognisable attractions including Times Square, Central Park, the Empire State Building and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

    Why not also take a look at our school trips to Rome or attend the Business Live! conference in Paris and see what we can offer you.
