We’ve organised many English trips for groups looking to broaden their perspective of English literature, receiving some amazing feedback along the way. Take a look at some of the school trip highlights our English study groups have experienced across London, Yorkshire and Stratford-upon-Avon.
Charles Dickens Museum - London
Arguably one of the finest wordsmiths in English literature history, students can learn about the life of the great Charles Dickens in this exclusive museum. Take in the various exhibitions, paintings, items and inspirations behind Dickens’ work. Students can also partake in a dedicated walk in London, visiting the places where Dickens lived and worked to appreciate the work and inspiration of the Dickens era.
School trips to Stratford-upon-Avon
Warwickshire is Shakespeare country, and a school trip to Stratford-upon-Avon offers the chance to explore the famous town and connections that inspired the great work of William Shakespeare. Students can delve deeper into the world of Shakespeare, visiting his original birthplace to discover the inspirations behind the famous playwright’s iconic written works.
Visit the cottage of Shakespeare’s wife Anne Hathaway, where students take a trip back over 500 years to see the striking features of the original cottage. One of the highlights is the sculpture trail in the Great Garden. Home to eight bronze monuments designed by American sculptor Greg Wyatt, these marvellous works encapsulate prominent imagery from some of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, including Macbeth, The Tempest, and Hamlet. Enrich your students’ perspective of Shakespeare's playwriting with a school theatre trip to the famous Swan Theatre, an Elizabethan-style venue that will wow and excite your group.
Brontë Parsonage Museum - Yorkshire
A trip to Yorkshire offers your students an opportunity to explore the town of Haworth, the source of inspiration for the famous Brontë sisters’ novels - Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. The Brontë Parsonage Museum is home to the tone of the world’s oldest literary societies and serves as a place of culture, learning and inspiration for scholars and writers from around the world.
