York for School Groups
York is a unique and vibrant city for school trips, offering excellent educational resources and a range of school group accommodation providers at affordable prices.
The city’s wealth of attractions offer children the opportunity to discover the history that has shaped York and England. From the Roman Bath Museum, where children can see how the conquerors from Rome lived, to the JORVIK Viking Centre where they can experience the sights and smells of Viking York, there’s plenty for children to interact with and learn from. Pupils can walk along a Victorian street at York Castle Museum and journey through York's murky history at The York Dungeon.
Fairfax House also offers tailored visits where pupils can become Georgian traders and aristocrats and will be transported back in time to the 18th Century to see what life would have been like in a Georgian townhouse.
Be sure to visit the York Minster Learning Centre and choose from a variety of inspiring curriculum-linked packages. Check out more information on school workshops linked to the curriculum at Beningbrough Hall. Not your average classroom!
