Capture their imagination

 Discover the culture and history of Britain through its great cities, museums, architecture and landscapes. Roman Bath and Chester, the Eden Project, London's Christmas markets, Edinburgh Castle; all these and more are bursting with learning opportunities.

Choose your own fully personalised itinerary of great local excursions, led by a PGL Tour Leader who brings the experience alive for your pupils.

Based at your chosen centre, you have the freedom to explore local attractions, combined with PGL adventure activities.

We work with you to arrange the perfect selection of trips to inspire and motivate your KS2 group. Theme your visit to tie in with a particular subject area or choose a destination for cross-curricular enrichment. We provide advice on timings and entrance fees and look after all the details to ensure your trip runs as smoothly as possible.
