Capture their imagination

Discover the culture and history of Britain through its great cities, its 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.

You can choose your own fully personalised itinerary of great local excursions, led by a PGL Tour Leader who will bring the experience alive for your pupils.

Based at your chosen centre, you have the freedom to widen horizons further. Enjoy the bonus of the PGL adventure experience. The excitement; the challenge; the adrenalin.

Bring home happy, excited children who have not only seen more, but learnt more too. About the UK’s culture and history. And about themselves.


We work with you before you travel to arrange the perfect selection of trips to inspire and motivate your KS2 group. Whether it’s theming your visit to a particular subject area or choosing a destination for cross-curricular enrichment, you can create the programme to suit you. We’ll advise on timings, entrance fees and look after all the details to ensure your trip runs as smoothly as possible.

To complement your excursion programme, PGL’s unmissable adventure activities and busy programme of evening entertainment add that little bit extra that makes all the difference.
