School trips can be one of the most exciting events in a child’s year, and if planned properly, can be inspiring and educational as well. The most important part of any school trip is the location, and fortunately the UK is home to many wonderful destinations tailored specifically to children.
National Space Centre
Many children are fascinated by the workings of our galaxy and the universe, and the National Space Centre in Leicester will keep them wide-eyed and fascinated for hours. The UK’s largest attraction dedicated to space features six themed galleries and hundreds of interactive exhibits. In the National Space Centre, children can explore the furthest reaches of space and the weirdest corners of the universe from the comfort of their home planet.
The Tate Modern
For art lovers, the Tate Modern makes for a great school trip thanks to it being the home of modern and contemporary art in the UK. With pieces ranging from 1900 right through to today, the gallery also runs daily presentations as well as special events and exhibitions to showcase some of the very finest art.
