An Anglia Battlefield Study tour affords the opportunity to combine visits to a wider range of different locations or to look in more detail at those themes which are of particular interest to your students.
As with all our school history trips you are involved, from the outset, in designing the itinerary for your Battlefield Study. So if you are keen to follow a particular unit or trace the route taken by former students of your school, we design your tour around where they were stationed and where they fought.
If you want to explore advances in technology we can look at the development of new weapons and involve your students in a working demonstration of a tank.
With a programme spread over 3 or 4 days these are, educationally, the most valuable battlefield trips available. They also allow for a more relaxing trip with more time spent at each location visited.
Brilliant - the best guides we
have had. They made the tour
very interactive and had lots of
resources with them. Students had
such a personalised tour.
